Economic reality is pervasive, but perhaps insufficiently engaged by philosophy.

Philosophical engagement with economic thinkers and thinking has benefits to both disciplines. Not least, in attempting to give an account of what economic 'reality' is, or is like.

Does 'economic' activity serve significant purposes other than provisioning for life, or does it really just extend the 'empire of means'. In constituting economic affairs, we constitute ourselves also.

There are many ways of thinking economics, not least, to think of it as a plurality of ways of thinking rather than a unified field.
