              Capital in the History of Accounting and Economic Thought: Capitalism, Ecology and Democracy (Hardback)

              Starting with the first scientific economists such as Cantillon (1755) and Quesnay (1758) and ending with Piketty (2019), this book explores the treatment of the concept of capital in the history of accounting and economic thought. The work provides a rare juxtaposition of the re...asoning, discourse and writings of accountants and economists. With regard to 'capital', this approach highlights the ongoing struggle between these uncongenial twins - as Kenneth Boulding put it - for primacy in analysing, and utilising, capitalism. But if they are certainly uncongenial , the book also argues that it is wrong to ever classify these two disciplines as twins because they have taken very different paths ever since scientism came to dominate in economics and ethical and moral considerations were put to one side. This book will be of significant interest to readers to history of economic thought, critical accounting and heterodox economics.

              This collection of three hip hop plays by Conrad Murray and his Beats & Elements collaborators Paul Cree, David Bonnick Junior and Lakeisha Lynch-Stevens, is the first publication of the critically acclaimed theatre-maker's work. The three plays use hip hop to highlight the inequ...alities produced by the UK's class system, and weave lyricism, musicality and dialogue to offer authentic accounts of inner-city life written by working-class Londoners. The plays are accompanied by two introductory essays: The first gives a specific social and historical context that helps readers make sense of the plays, the second positions hip hop as a contemporary literary form and offers some ways to read hip hop texts as literature. The collection also includes a foreword by leading hip hop theatre practitioner Jonzi D, interviews with the Beats & Elements company, and a glossary of words for students and international readers.

              What does comparative philosophy entail? Who is qualified to undertake it? Under what conditions are its claims considered to be legitimate? Addressing arguments that comparative philosophy is itself impossible, or that it is indistinguishable from philosophy more generally, this... collection challenges myopic understandings of comparative method and encourages a more informed consideration of method. Bringing together as wide a variety of methodological options as is possible, it provides a sustained evaluation of the benefits and limitations of each approach. Featuring scholars from East Asia, South Asia, the Middle East, Africa, Europe, and North America and representing a wide variety of philosophical traditions, each chapter presents a cutting-edge reflection on the latest work in methodology. From the beginnings of comparative philosophy among the ancient Chinese and Greeks up through the 19th century to present-day proposals for an Institute for Cosmopolitan Philosophy, every chapter serves as a viable methodological alternative for any would-be philosophical comparativist. With contributions from leading comparativists that are both distinctive in their method and explicit about its application, this is a valuable resource in comparative methodology that challenges and enriches the awareness and sensitivity of both the beginning comparativist and seasoned veteran alike.
