Oeconomies in the Age of Newton : 2003 Supplement Hardback


While the history of early modern science is well-charted terrain, less has been recorded on the economic thinking of the same period and less still on the intersection of these fields.

Addressing this gap in scholarship, Oeconomies in the Age of Newton offers a detailed account of economic concepts of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.

The volume focuses on "oeconomics"-as "economics" was spelled at that time-which implies a view of economics as shaped by the Greek concept of the household.

Examining a range of "oeconomic" curiosities, Oeconomies in the Age of Newton provides intriguing insights into a historical conceptualization of economic relations that differs markedly from the more narrowly defined economics of today.
