Philanthropy, social economy and a changing world-system. Part 3 Part 3

"From capitalism and a precursor world-system based on corporatism, governance, and political dissent comes the call for global change - in many respects that remain intertwined. Yet there is another voice out there in this morass of power and conflict; dissent and assertiveness. It is the vehement cry of the small but affirming against the large. The study of the social economy and change are in the area of stemming down the sparks from the anvil of conflict. Such a study is seen to go together between philanthropy and social emergence at the grassroots. To study such deepening change it is necessary to examine the deconstruction that is taking place in the global scene from the monolithic large and powerful into the small but powerful. Change thus, is not coming from the side of big governments, mighty rulers, and high corporatism.

Islamic Economics and Finance: an epistemological inquiry

Islamic Economics and Finance: An Epistemological Inquiry is a scholarly work on the foundations of the role that the moral and ethical law plays on human enterprise comprising economics, finance, society and science. Divided into three parts, theoretical, empirical and application, the study covers a vast area of socio-scientific investigation and is extensively comparative in perspective. Its methodology is a mix of a textual, analytical, diagrammatic, mathematical and applied nature spanning various problems of Islamic economics, finance, society and science within a general-system worldview of unity of knowledge. This book presents multidimensional general-system conception, construction, formalism, application and inference as empirically viable and explainable and uses the language of philosophy of science and applied mathematical models alongside policy analysis. At a time when an epistemological study of the foundations of Islamic economics, finance, society and science is receiving crucial attention worldwide this text is equally accessible to the informed reader and the specialized one.
