Authors : Khelladi Mohammed Amine Mehdi .

Abstract

Drawing on historical and comparative approaches related to economic challenges and philosophical issues, the purpose of this article is to examine how economic thought evolved with the 20th-century ecological crisis. The originality lies in the analysis of the evolution process by a broad overview that brings together knowledge from different fields such as economics, ecology, philosophy, physics, and sociology. The main finding underscores that this crisis was an opportunity that allowed a renewal of economic thought by helping it to evolve both in terms of conceptual and methodological aspects.
