Critique: 'While there is growing recognition that understanding knowledge is at the very heart of economics, little work has been coming forth thus far representing in a comprehensive and coherent way its fundamental nature and wide-ranging consequences for economic analysis. The editors, Richard Arena, Agnes Festre, and Nathalie Lazaric, are to be commended for having filled this critical gap by providing a well-organized collection of outstanding articles. This rich and greatly needed Handbook, comprises of contributions about the role knowledge plays in the history of the discipline as well as the most significant current developments as we witness them, particularly in the branches of evolutionary, institutional and complexity economics.' - Kurt Dopfer, University of Gallen, Switzerland
