Although it was not planned as such, this volume can be viewed as something of a companion to volume 7 of this series, Evolutionary Psychology and Economic Theory. In that volume, pride of place was given to the evolutionary psychology of Cosmides, Tooby, and others. In this volume more attention has been given to neuroscience and cognitive science. These different literatures overlap greatly and should be viewed as complements, not substitutes. We have invited scholars from various fields, including institutional economics, evolutionary economics, cognitive economics, Austrian economics, bioeconomics and law-and-economics, to provide their current perspectives on the methodological and substantive issues posed by the growing interdependence of the cognitive and social sciences. Finally, the contributions to our volume herald a genuinely interdisciplinary project in which, however, we deliberately avoid the hegemonic impulse habitually characterizing the synthesis of cognitive and social sciences.
