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.

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.

Samuel Bowles has researched Sociocultural evolution in several fields, including Conventional wisdom, Shame, Environmental ethics, Coevolution and Social emotions.
