Intellectual History of Economic Normativities
The book investigates the many ways that economic and moral reasoning interact, overlap and conflict both historically and at present. The book explores economic and moral thinking as a historically contingent pair using the concept of economic normativities. The contributors use case studies including economic practices, such as trade and finance and tax and famine reforms in the British colonies to explore the intellectual history of how economic and moral issues interrelate. Mikkel Thorup is Associate Professor of history of political and economic thought at the University of Aarhus, Denmark. His publications include Pro Bono (2015), The Total Enemy (2015), Intellectual History of Terror (2010) and Rousseau and Revolution (2010). His research concentrates at present on the history of everyday economics.
