This stimulating book offers an astute analysis of corporate governance from both a historical and a philosophical point of view. Exploring how the modern corporation developed, from Ancient Rome and the Middle Ages up to the present day, Javier Reyes identifies the strengths and weaknesses of the mainstream theory of the firm as put forward by the law and economics school of thought.
Demystifying the scientific aspirations of neoclassical economics as understood and used by legal scholars, this book offers readers the foundations on which to build their own conception of what corporations are and should be. Reyes argues that by belonging to political philosophy, corporate governance is essentially political, and thus requires a multidisciplinary approach for its study and practice.
Reframing Corporate Governance will be essential reading for academics and students of company law and corporate governance, especially those interested in entrepreneurship, radical democracy, evolutionary approaches to legal theory and business anthropology. Those interested in corporate social responsibility, business and management, and philosophy will also find this a valuable read.
