About this book

The volume contains eight articles together with comments by twenty authors and discussants on the topic of innovations and sustainability. It provides a competently written, balanced and differentiated state-of-the-art insight into the relation between innovations and sustainability from the perspective of evolutionary economics. The scope of the contributions encompasses the technological, social, organizational, and political dimensions of the topic. Each article is discussed by a competently written commentary providing a critical evaluation and relating it to the relevant literature. Particular interest lies on the issues of steering opportunities and path formation capabilities by decentralized agents, or governmental institutions from the viewpoint of evolutionary economics.

Aus den Rezensionen: " Eine Besonderheit des Sammelbandes ist, dass jedem Hauptbeitrag ein kurzer Kommentar nachgestellt ist Diese direkte Form des schriftlichen wissenschaftlichen Diskurses ist sehr vorbildlich und auch f r den Leser sehr gewinnbringend Neben der methodischen Innovation des direkten Kommentars sind auch eine Reihe von innovativen Methoden zu erw hnen, die einzelne Beitr ge des Sammelbandes auszeichnen und zur spannenden Lekt re werden lassen. Insgesamt bringt der Sammelband eine Reihe aktueller Ans tze im Forschungsfeld zusammen und erfreut den Leser durch die Vielfalt der eingesetzten Forschungsmethoden." (Marcus Wagner, in: kologisches Wirtschaften, 2008, Issue 1, S. 54)
