Title: Political Economy, Linguistics and Culture
Subtitle: Crossing Bridges
Edited By: Jürgen Georg Backhaus
URL: http://www.springer.com/978-0-387-73371-5
Series Title: The European Heritage in Economics and the Social Sciences
Description:

During the late 19th and throughout the 20th century, social sciences in
general and economics in particular have undergone enormous progress. This
has led to something of an embarrassment of riches. While certain topics
have been fully researched to the point where the marginal benefit from
further research is approaching zero, others have remained largely
under-researched or were being ignored altogether.

It is this discrepancy which prompted the research paradigm of “Crossing
Bridges”. For this volume, ten authors have joined forces to address the
problem of under-researched topics, focussing in particular on gaps in
interdisciplinary research between economics and other social sciences such
as linguistics, art and cultural history. Making use of interdisciplinary
methods and approaches, the book makes a case for stronger bonds between
the different fields of social science.
