Abstract

This article provides an overview of the Italian side of Giovanni Dosi in terms of his career and works. It brings up two unpublished papers by Dosi showing in part his wider interests in philosophical themes. The article concludes by noting that by recognizing that many of the problems the world faces are not natural or optimal outcomes but are instead the result of human institutions, choices, and path dependencies, Dosi's work also has a very policy-oriented focus.
