Darwinism and Economics Test Revision

Geoffrey M. Hodgson

Please note this updated and revised Research Review is only available online. The link to Buy Book in Print and Find This Book in Your Library is to a previous edition available in print. The previous print edition reprints the full text of many, though not all, of the Recommended Articles and complements the online edition. This research review assembles outstanding works of recent scholarship on Darwinism covering three major fields of enquiry: How Darwinism affects our conception of human nature and challenges long-standing assumptions such as self-interested behaviour. Analysis of the nature of socio-cultural evolution, its differences from biological evolution and whether it is Lamarckian. The possibility of generalizing core Darwinian principles to cover evolving entities in the economic and social world, as well as in biology.
