Epilogue -- Appendix: Long-term factor substitution.Includes index.The book deals with the roots of German historistic and organistic thought in economics and surveys the development of this aspect of economic thought. The work makes it clear that this approach is also of significance for present-day institutional economics, especially in the field of environmental and resource economics. These fields of study are referred to in various ways. The ideas of the German Historical School are discussed. The scope of the work, however, is broader, as it is oriented towards the evolution of historistic and organistic ideas in general. This means that the ideas of authors like Menger and Georgescu-Roegen, and those who were among the "Institutionalists", and other present-day writers in this field, are also examined.
