Summary

Innovative and cutting-edge, this book proposes an alternative philosophical framework for economics which will reconfigure economics and social theory as historical disciplines that analyze successive standardizations of social practices. Using several tools from the poststructuralist arsenal Lutzker examines work from a range of disciplines, including: social history the history of statistics the history of technology. Outlining some of the major standardizations in the economic history of modern capitalism, this book is an excellent resource for all students of economics or related fields, as well as those studying economic sociology, social theory, cultural studies and science studies.
