Sonya Scott specializes in the study of subjectivity and economic thought. She has published a book on the history of economic thought (Architectures of Economic Subjectivity: Philosophical Foundations of the Subject in the History of Economic Thought, Routledge: 2013) and is currently working on a book concerning the question of the ‘Economy’ as subject. Her research deals with language, philosophy, subjectivity and economic reasoning, and she is particularly concerned with theories of economic crisis and equilibrium, including the origins of the mathematization of economics, business cycle theory and contemporary responses to crisis.
