Research output: Contribution to JournalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Is a non-economistic approach to the economic possible? This paper presents a positive answer to this question through a discussion of the much vaunted Rudolf Hilferding. In particular, it examines Hilferding's implicit structuralism in his port~ayaolftheeconomicspaceasorganized. Thenotionoforganizationiscritically analysed from the perspective of recent advances in post-structuralist theory around the concept of discourse. T o this effect, the paper attempts to develop a fuller theoretical understandingof the idea of disorganization. Finally, it looks at the consequences that this idea might hold for a new conception of democratic politics.
