Philip Mirowski’s New Book

I’ve been following Philip Mirowski‘s work on economics and science ever since I spotted a copy of Machine Dreams: Economics Becomes A Cyborg Science (Cambridge University Press, 2001) in RMIT University’s Swanston St, Melbourne library. Mirowski’s book Never Let A Serious Crisis Go To Waste (Verso, 2013) was one of the best studies of the 2008 global financial crisis and neoliberalism’s ideological role. Now, he has coauthored The Knowledge We Have Lost In Information (Oxford University Press, 2017) on how modern economics deals with information. Mirowski’s work is a culturally informed model that I will use for in-progress PhD and post-thesis research.
