Progress in Economic and Political Thought : An Intellectual History, Hardback Book

Progress in Economic and Political Thought : An Intellectual History Hardback

Part of the Routledge Studies in the History of Economics series

Description

This innovative and interdisciplinary book opens up the debate about the meaning of "progress" and its relation to justice, rights, liberty, modern science and technology.

It challenges many 21st century assumptions about progress, arguing for a complete reconfiguration of the concept.

The book is focused on problems surrounding the definition of "progress" in the widest sense of that contentious term.

Building on the work of authors such as Kant, Popper, and Hayek, it develops a fascinating new perspective which provides a criticism of the most widely understood concept of progress.
