“Theorizing Competition: An interdisciplinary approach to the genesis of a contested concept” by Altreiter, Gräbner, Pühringer, Rogojanu and Wolfmayr
This recent paper by the SPACE leading team discusses the concept of competition in different historical and disciplinary contexts. It provides an analytical and historical comparison between conceptions of competition from economics, sociology and anthropology. The interdisciplinary review and systematisation show how different conceptions of competition are bound up with different ways to theorize the relation between an “economic realm” and a “social realm”. By focusing on the scope and normative implications of these concepts, the authors aim to develop a better understanding of competization, i.e. the expanision of competitive modes of regulation and practices.
