CitationAkansel, İ. (2013). Historically Reading the Concept of Gender by the Dilemma of Heterodox-Orthodox Vision. In Economics: Concepts, Methodologies, Tools, and Applications, Technology and Financial Crisis: Economical and Analytical Views (pp. 82-92).
In this chapter, the authors analyze the concept of gender and its history; they look at the crisis that is caused by this concept in terms of both orthodox economy and the heterodox economy. A wide range of feminist economics arguments are considered. Feminist economics arguments correspond to the points of Antonio Gramsci's "hegemony" and Louis Althusser's "ideology." Starting with both philosophers' concepts, the authors explicate the dilemma of orthodox-heterodox economics. First, they discuss the vision of heterodox-orthodox economics. Then, they discuss how technology becomes an important part of orthodox economics, and through the aforementioned philosophers, they discuss what would happen in the economic system if this situation changes.
