Ecological Economics: Concepts and Methods

Front Cover
An introduction to ecological economics, an emerging discipline combining economics, natural science, and philosophy in the study of the interaction between humans and the natural world. The nine contributors collate their individual knowledge in these traditionally isolated fields producing essays that speak to the roles of science and ethics, evolution in biology, physics, and economics, the relationship between a philosophical experience and an environmental reality, and test cases in linking ecology and economy in the chemical industry.
