Supervised by Nicolas Postel and Richard Sobel.
The works in this series are concerned with capitalisms in their historical and geographical diversity, more particularly, with the institutions which secure the embedding of capitalism in society and chart this spatio-temporal diversity. The approach chosen puts forward the ethico-political compromises which are at the roots of those institutions, make them function and legitimize them. Fully immersed in a hermeneutic approach of social sciences, this ethical questioning asks for a transdisciplinary perspective, a perspective which this series precisely aims at developing by mobilizing the whole of social sciences, in particular, economics, management, sociology, political science and history. The aim here is also to propose analyses which avoid, on the one hand, an excessively rigid analytical distinction between individualism and holism and, on the other hand, an excessive disciplinary focus of each social sciences on their "own" object. This series brings together collective works (partly elaborated in collaboration with the RIODD network) and scientific essays – sharp but always straightforward – addressed to a learned and curious readership.
