The newest edition of the Journal of Markets & Morality is now available online and in print (www.marketsandmorality.com).
This issue of the Journal features a new scholia. "Selections from the Dicaeologicae" is an original English translation of several key chapters of Johannes Althusius' Dicaeologicae, the ground-breaking seventeenth-century work that systematized current civil law, Roman law, and Jewish law into one collective and cohesive legal system. Althusius was a key player in the development of political science as a disciplinary field of study and his Dicaeologicae was one of the first examples of the emerging field in the seventeenth century.
The new issue also features a publicly available editorial by Stephen Grabill. "The Fallacy of Adam’s Fallacy" examines Duncan Foley’s best-selling Adam’s Fallacy: A Guide to Economic Theology. Grabill argues that Foley ignores the historical context of Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations as well as his other relevant writings resulting in a poorly documented attempt to discredit Smith.
