Summary

Nicolae Georgescu-Roegen (1906-1994) is considered today as perhaps the chief founder of the transdisciplinary field today known as Ecological Economics, but that he defined himself as Bioeconomics . In his later years Georgescu-Roegen intended to write a book of this title that would systematize what he considered to be the most significant results of his work. This project intends to resume this project, publishing a collection of the most relevant Georgescu-Roegen essays on Bioeconomics, including previously unpublished papers.The most recent anthology of Georgescu-Roegen's work available in English is Energy and Economic Myths and this dates back to 1976 as well as containing only two articles on Bioeconomic theory. This new collection contains an introduction and concluding essay from Mauro Bonaiuti presenting the natural link between Bioeconomics and the modern literature on sustainable degrowth, one of the hottest new topics to emerge in the social sciences in recent years.
