Germano Maifreda at "Oikonomia and Chrematistike" conference in Berlin
Oikonomia and Chrematistike: Knowledge and Structures of "Economy" in Ancient and Early Modern Europe
7th 8th November 2013
The aim of the conference is to investigate fundamental methodological and factual questions concerning the relationship between the concrete historical development of economic structures, in particular the expansion of monetary relations, and contemporary knowledge of economy, in particular the attempt to restrict economy to the domestic sphere. Against this background we aim to reconstruct the history of the transformation of “economic” bodies of knowledge in European history.
