Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Capitalism
  • Law
  • World War II

His scientific interests lie mostly in Social psychology, Positive economics, Social group, Public policy and Altruism. The Social psychology study combines topics in areas such as Strong reciprocity, Sociocultural evolution, Control and Coevolution. His Positive economics research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Reciprocity, Meritocracy, Public economics and Market integration.

Samuel Bowles combines subjects such as Social relation, Microeconomics and Public goods game with his study of Social group. His studies deal with areas such as Socioeconomic status, Development economics, Law and economics, Incentive and Selfishness as well as Public policy. His Altruism research integrates issues from Crowding out and Competition.

His most cited work include:

  • Schooling in Capitalist America (2371 citations)
  • Schooling in capitalist America : educational reform and the contradictions of economic life (1970 citations)
  • In search of homo economicus: Behavioral experiments in 15 small-scale societies (1691 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary areas of investigation include Social psychology, Political economy, Positive economics, Microeconomics and Incentive. In his work, Punishment is strongly intertwined with Strong reciprocity, which is a subfield of Social psychology. His study looks at the relationship between Political economy and fields such as Economic system, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.

As part of his studies on Positive economics, Samuel Bowles frequently links adjacent subjects like Social science. His Incentive study incorporates themes from Social preferences, Public economics, Folk theorem, Relevance and Public good. A large part of his Public good studies is devoted to Public goods game.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Social psychology (16.58%)
  • Political economy (12.57%)
  • Positive economics (13.90%)

  • Political economy (12.57%)
  • Gini coefficient (2.41%)
  • Politics (6.95%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Samuel Bowles mainly investigates Political economy, Gini coefficient, Politics, Incentive and Sociocultural evolution. His Political economy research includes themes of Institution and Economy. Samuel Bowles interconnects Public economics and Social preferences in the investigation of issues within Incentive.

Samuel Bowles has researched Sociocultural evolution in several fields, including Conventional wisdom, Shame, Environmental ethics, Coevolution and Social emotions. His work carried out in the field of Punishment brings together such families of science as Reciprocity and Social psychology. In most of his Reciprocity studies, his work intersects topics such as Positive economics.

Between 2011 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Endogenous Preferences: The Cultural Consequences of Markets and Other Economic Institutions (1242 citations)
  • A Cooperative Species: Human Reciprocity and Its Evolution (752 citations)
  • Economic Incentives and Social Preferences: Substitutes or Complements? (387 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Law
  • Capitalism
  • World War II

Gini coefficient, Agriculture, Economic inequality, Redistribution and Neoclassical economics are his primary areas of study. His studies in Gini coefficient integrate themes in fields like Comparability, Domestication, Development economics and Econometrics. Social inequality, Urbanization and Urban revolution is closely connected to Economy in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Agriculture.

Samuel Bowles focuses mostly in the field of Economic inequality, narrowing it down to matters related to Field and, in some cases, Labour economics. His Redistribution research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Exceptionalism, Nordic model, Egalitarianism, Standard of living and Distribution. The various areas that Samuel Bowles examines in his Neoclassical economics study include Competition, Prosperity, General equilibrium theory and Free market.
