Abstract
 
Description
Knowledge, Social Institutions and the Division of Labour gives rise to a new and richer institutional analysis of the economy centered around the analysis of language, the division of labor and social knowledge. It is in this perspective that the economic analysis of institutions comes to be associated with the study of civil society, or with the broad framework of communication and coordination behind the interaction of individuals in economic and non-economic spheres. This fascinating book is divided into three parts beginning with the issue of the development of science as an aspect of the division of labor, starting from methodological problems on the communication of scientific knowledge. The volume goes on to explore issues on the moral bases of social interaction and, more particularly, of commercial society before ending with in depth analyses of questions on the division of labor, social institutions and the diffusion of knowledge in society. - from Amzon
