Über diesen Titel
Book by Field Alexander JCríticas:
"Field provides a feast for scholars who are struggling to develop a coherent theory of human behavior grounded in evolutionary biology and tested with empirical data from diverse social settings. Scholars in all of the social sciences would be well advised to read this book carefully." --Elinor Ostrom, Journal of Interdisciplinary History -- (09/30/2003) ..".a work of scholarship and mature reflection, based on a wide reading across economics, biology, and psychology..." --Robert Sugden, Journal of Economic Literature -- (01/09/2003) ." . . an excellent study in clearly demonstrating some major failings of neoclassical economics, forces an examination of 'preconceptions' (including our own), and provides a strong argument supporting the position that humans are much more (and much better) than a great deal of conventional theory--arising in all fields of inquiry--would have us." --John F. Henry, California State University, Sacramento, Journal of Economic Issues, March 2003 -- (07/10/2003) "Field has set new standards for interdisciplinary erudition: he moves with ease from game theory and experimental economics to evolutionary theory and psychology. . . . Field has done us a great service by writing this book." --Joel Mokyr, Northwestern University, Journal of Economic History, March 2003 -- (05/19/2003) ..".a provocative, integrative, impressively scholarly work that will stimulate a wide range of readers." --Thomas P. Hahn, Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience -- (01/09/2003) ." . . it is a very engaging work that should be ready by anyone interested in explaining human altruism. It is likely to generate renewed interest in this important topic . . ." --Craig T. Palmer, Human Nature Review, Volume 2 (2002) -- (04/12/2002) ." . . a handy guide to a diverse literature that should interest all economists and historians. Field shows how we can and should embrace a more nuanced understanding of human nature. His book should inspire a greater flexibility in both the theories and methods of the economics discipline. Economic history can and should show the way." --Rick Szostak, University of Alberta, EH.NET, June 2002 -- (08/07/2002) "This book presents a bold and fascinating conjecture pertaining to the interface of several disciplines: economics, sociology, evolutionary psychology, and ethics. It will force practitioners in each of these disciplines to look at familiar problems in a new way." --Melvin Reder, Isidore Brown and Gladys J. Brown Professor Emeritus of Urban and Labor Economics, University of Chicago -- (07/27/2001) "In this remarkable book, Alex Field casts his net across disciplines to confront the question that economists prefer to avoid: Why are human beings altruistic? His powerful argument deserves the attention of all social scientists." --Gavin Wright, Department of Economics, Stanford University --Gavin Wright, Department of Economics, Stanford University (07/09/2001) "Should economists keep on trying to force everything into a Prudence Only model, or should they admit that evolved human nature has room for Love and Justice, too? Alexander Field--an economist and historian, a reader of biology and of literature--brings an extraordinarily wide range of thought to bear on the issue. He is a public intellectual to rank with Robert Frank or Robert Putnam, though he disagrees sharply with the fashionable pessimism of these two. Passions stay well within reason and we do not usually, after all, bowl alone. Why? Because we have evolved for good reasons as ethical beings, who try to be harmless when we can. All manner of social cooperation, from negotiating the Santa Monica Freeway to ordinary commerce, depends on the Niceness Instinct that Field celebrates and explains. Field has written a great book, readable and important, a reply to the boys playing in a Hobbesian sandbox, who dominate our social sciences but cannot imagine why societies cohere." --Deirdre McCloskey, UIC Distinguished Professor of Economics, History, and English, University of Illinois at Chicago, and Tinbergen Professor of Economics, Philosophy, and Art and Cultural Studies, Erasmusuniversiteit Rotterdam -- (07/06/2001)
