Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.

Joseph Schumpeters "Geschichte der ökonomischen Analyse" gilt als Meilenstein einer dogmenhistorischen Aufarbeitung wirtschaftswissenschaftlichen Denkens. Schumpeters Studie reicht von den Anfängen ökonomischer Analyse im antiken Wirtschaftsdenken bis hin zur modernen keynesianischen Makroökonomik. Neben dem einzigartigen enzyklopädischen Charakter der dogmenhistorischen Ausführungen basiert die analytische Bedeutung dieses Werks auf wissenschaftsphilosophischen Ausführungen, die die Diskussion zur Entwicklung der Wirtschaftstheorie methodologisch anreichern und dazu beitragen, sie in ihrem historisch-politischen Kontext einzubetten. Die Neuausgabe dieser lange vergriffenen deutschen Ausgabe wird erweitert um eine wirkungsgeschichtliche Einführung von Alexander Ebner.
