Editorial Reviews

Review

"The editors bring together an interesting and thought-provoking collection of essays at the intersection of several disciplines. The juxtaposition of these pieces casts their topics in a new light, suggesting fresh and illuminating lines of thought and research. This collection should be of interest to a wide range of scholars and students interested in crucial questions of public policy and their theoretical underpinnings."—Diane Jeske, University of Iowa


"In the 20th century, Economics aspired to become a technical discipline, more akin to engineering and physics. The effort to build a discipline of this nature has failed. Now, what was old is new again. The disciplines of Philosophy, Politics, and Economics are once again being integrated and there is a common research program emerging. Philosophy, Politics & Economics is an outstanding collection of contemporary essays. It is a great place to start to get a sense of today's questions and approachesand the potential for this integration to improve our understanding of the human condition."—Peter J. Boettke, Professor of Economics and BB&T Professor for the Study of Capitalism at the Mercatus Center, George Mason University

3 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Protomold on January 6, 2011
Format: Paperback
It was the table of contents that drew me to this book. And at first I was quite excited about reading it...but that excitement quickly waned. This book is written by and written for those already in the in-group. It is incredibly insular. The various writing styles are tolerable. What is not tolerable is the lack of argumentation. No author tries to make a complete argument. Rather, they rely on vague references to theses and arguments made in other publications. Either that, or they make a claim and then say they don't have the time or space to argue for it. Basically, the only reason you'd find this book interesting and informative is if you already know everything there is to know about the existent literature.
