In this text, the authors engage in a dialogue on social evolution
from Institutionalist and Marxist perspectives, each representing
one side. It is their intention to explore the way society develops
using the equally radical, but very different approaches of
Thorstein Veblen and Karl Marx. The dialogue proceeds with a series
of questions - each answered from the two perspectives. Beginning
with an intellectual history and definition, the book examines
social evolution in terms of causal elements including: economic
relations; technology; political relations; and social processes;
structural change; social tension; and social conflict. It thus
provides a guide on how different economic theories can be used as
a tool to view society - and the way different standpoints can both
compliment and contradict each other. The result should be an
accessible study of economic evolution that is intended for
students of political economy.
