Ecology and the Commons in Yoshiro Tamanoi

EasyChair Preprint no. 10879

6 pagesDate: September 11, 2023


Yoshiro Tamanoi (1918-1985) was one of the pioneers in approaching economics from an ecological perspective. He developed the concept of “economics in the wider sense”, later known as the “economics of the living system”. Drawing from various fields, such as the history of economic thought, Marxian and modern economic theories, entropy theory, regionalism, and gender theory, Tamanoi developed his own unique understanding of the commons. This paper examines what interest runs through “economics in the wider sense” and how this interest evolved into thinking about the commons.
