From Philosophy to Economics:...
Diverse, introductory, and interesting essays on Descartes, Schopenhauer, Marx, Bergson, Adam Smith, David Ricardo, Thomas Kuhn, Hecksher, Ohlin.
Topics include: certainty, conditions for knowledge, empirical and a priori knowledge, ego, duration, consciousness, free-will, alienation, naturalism, scientific revolutions, profits, rents, classical and marginalist economics, foreign trade theory. These essays were written when I was a graduate student in philosophy in the late 1960s at New York University and then a decade later as a graduate student in economics at the Graduate Faculty, The New School for Social Research.
After reading and digesting these essays the reader will be able to converse with philosophers and economists on these topics at dinner parties and other social gatherings, as long as the reader keeps the conversation on a superficial level.
