Special issue of journal addresses paradigm| July 17, 2013
The Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization
(JEBO) has published a special issue titled “Evolution as a General Theoretical Framework for Economics and Public Policy,” co-edited by David Sloan Wilson, distinguished professor of biological sciences and anthropology, and economists John Gowdy and J. Barkley Rosser. The 13 articles in the publication are based on a collaboration between the Evolution Institute and the National Evolutionary Synthesis Center that began with a catalysis meeting in 2009 and continued with a series of four workshops.
The issue stresses the paradigmatic nature of adopting the evolutionary perspective. Economic and evolutionary thought have been entwined throughout their histories, but evolution does not function as a general theoretical framework for economics and public policy in the same way as for the life sciences. The purpose of the special issue is to examine whether this is a problem and, if so, what can be done about it. Collectively, the 13 articles provide a persuasive argument for paradigmatic change.
The articles are free for a six-month period on the Evolution Institute website
, and a special edition of the online evolution magazine This View of Life
features short accessible summaries of each article. Sloan Wilson also discusses the import of the special issue in an article titled “A Good Social Darwinism”
published in Aeon
, an online magazine of ideas and culture.
