Handbook of Knowledge and Economics

Edited by Richard Arena, Agnès Festré () and Nathalie Lazaric ()

in Books from Edward Elgar Publishing

Abstract: By illuminating the philosophical roots of the various notions of knowledge employed by economists, this Handbook helps to disentangle conceptual and typological issues surrounding the debate on knowledge amongst economists. Wide-ranging in scope, it explores fundamental aspects of the relationship between knowledge and economics – such as the nature of knowledge, knowledge acquisition and knowledge diffusion.
