A thought provoking work that traces the dialectical development of economic thought from the physiocrats, through Marx, to the present. This interdisciplinary treatment synthesizes economics and social sciences with the natural sciences, focusing particularly on biology and ecology. Stokes supports the argument that the coevolution of humankind and the biosphere is an indispensable condition of society's further development with a discussion covering a far reaching variety of disciplines.
