Sammanfattning

This paper considers how epistemic analyses (Birkin and Polesie, 2011; Foucault, 1970, 1990a, 1990b) may assist with the development of sustainability economics (Bartelmus, 2010; Baumgartner and Quaas, 2010a, 2010b; and Soderbaum, 2011) and the capability approach (Ballet et al., 2011; Martins, 2011; Rauschmayer and Lessmann, 2011; Scerri, 2012). It was the French social theorist Michel Foucault (1926-1984) who coined the term "episteme" to refer to the "possibility of knowledge" that determines the development of thought and knowledge in a given period. For Foucault epistemes were the "buried" foundations of knowledge that his epistemic "archaeology" could unearth. In 2007, Foucault was identified as the most cited author of books in the humanities by Thomson Reuters' ISI Web of Science. This paper begins with a brief definition and description of epistemic analyses. A summary analysis of the Modern episteme and neoclassical economics is then provided and this is followed by outline evidence for the emerging episteme. Finally the opportunity is considered for the emerging episteme to reinforce and enhance sustainability economics and the capability approach. (C) 2013 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
