Veblen, T. B (1857.7.30-1929.8.3)

 アメリカの経済学者,社会思想家。制度学派の創始者。カールトン大学で,J. B. クラークに学び,ジョンズ・ホプキンズ大学を経て,エール大学にうつり,哲学博士の学位を受けた。シカゴ大学のラーフリン経済学部長に招かれ,ついでスタンフォード,ミズーリの各大学で経済学の講座を担当した。彼は経済学については体系的な著述をしなかったが,ドイツ新歴史学派の影響を受け,また哲学者デューイ (J. Dewey)と生涯深い影響を与えあい,資本主義の既存制度と無批判的な伝統思想とに対するその鋭い哲学的批判と天才的な洞察力とは,学界に最大の個人的刺激を与えることとなった。しかし非正統派的思想と奇矯な人柄とのために,教職に安住できず,同時代の人に理解されることなく,貧困と孤独とのなかに苦難の生涯を終えた。カント哲学の影響を深くうけた彼は,工匠本能が支配する機械技術の思考習性が,取得本能が支配する営利事業(ビジネス)の思考習性を掘りくずして,技術家のゼネ・ストによる産業共和国の実現することを構想した。彼は,社会改良主義者と異なり,ロシア革命に親近性を見いだしたが,労働組合を企業と同様にビジネスの思考習性に汚染されたビジネスの組織とみなし,新しい産業共和国建設の原動力と認めなかった。[主著]『有閑階級論』The theory of leisure class: an economic study in the evolution of institutions, New York, 1899; 『企業の理論』The theory of business enterprise, New York, 1904; 2 ed., 1932; The instinct of workmanship and the state of the industrial arts, 1914; Imperial Germany and the industrial revolution, 1915; An inquiry into the nature of peace and the terms of its perpetuation, 1917; The higher learning in America: a memorandum on the conduct of universities by business man, 1918; The place of science in modern civilization and other essays, 1919; The vested interests and the state of the industrial arts, 1919 (The vested interests and the common man, 1920); The engineers and the price system, 1921; Absentee ownership and business enterprise in recent times: the case of America, 1923.(学)
