Interdisciplinarity in the Work of Nicholas Georgescu – Roegen
AbstractGeorgescu#Roegen’s works, characterized by an interdisciplinarity less common in scientific literature, is a permanent source of ideas not only for economists but also for ecologists, biologists, philosophers, physicists, energy specialists, statisticians. Some of these professions consider him to belong to those communities and use these ideas as arguments in various debates. For example, economists consider, with good reason, that Georgescu#Roegen caused a real scientific revolution in economics, laying the foundation of a new discipline–bioeconomics. Ecologists, the strongest supporters of Georgescu#Roegen’s ideas, believe that ecology, as a new discipline, is based on his works published since 1966.
