Chapter 4: Different conceptions of neoliberalism
This chapter introduces readers to several key critical approaches to understanding neoliberalism. These include governmentality, Marxism, ideational analysis, institutional analysis, neoliberal thought collective, and processual or geographical analyses. It starts by discussing the use of neoliberalism as a term and concept in academic debate, before going on to outline the different ways that neoliberalism is currently understood in academic circles. The point of the chapter is to problematize the idea that the concept of neoliberalism can be applied easily in the analysis of the social world.
