Advanced Acknowledgment
“This book, written in crystal-clear style, develops the most profound philosophical discussion ever held of ecological economics.” Joan Martinez-Alier, Professor of Economics and Economic History, Autonomous University of Barcelona.
A brilliant contribution to a radical paradigm of social ecological economics concerned with both disciplinary and social-ecological transformation as necessary conditions for achieving a world in which we all, and all other species, can flourish.’” Tony Lawson, Professor of Economics and Philosophy, University of Cambridge.
The book is deeply rooted in the theory of science, offering a very enlightening text about fundamental issues for science that too often are glossed over or misunderstood.” Arild Vatn, Professor of Environmental Sciences, Norwegian University of Life Sciences
