This book provides insights into the process of valuation. Valuing is understood as a plural activity where 'pricing' things is just one way of signifying value. Socio-economic reality is constituted through different 'orders of worth' that are grounded in the way people 'praise' and 'prize' things.

Övrig information

Anders Koed Madsen is Assistant Professor at Aalborg University Copenhagen, where he is part of the Techno Anthropoligy Reseach Group. Drawing on his background in philosophy, new media studies and organizational theory, Anders does research on the way new forms of digital data and analytical software set new conditions for the production of knowledge in public and private organizations as well as in academia. In order to explore this question, he is simultaneously engaged in experimenting with digital methods and anlyzing organizations working with similar techniques. Theoretically Anders is inspired by various strands of Science and Technology Studies as well as different versions of pragmatic theory.
