Postmodernism

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingEntry for encyclopedia/dictionary

Abstract

Postmodernism resists encyclopaedic definition. On the level of economic phenomena, debates have centred on postmodernity as a separate historiographic period. On the conceptual level, the work of prominent economists has been argued to resonate with postmodernist themes. Certain parts of behavioural and experimental economics have begun to display key postmodernist features. A small selfconsciously postmodernist literature draws from economics, literary criticism, and Continental philosophical traditions in its analysis of economic phenomena.
