Abstract
Embeddedness is a core concept in economic anthropology. Associated primarily with the work of Karl Polanyi, it refers to the interconnections between economic functions in society and other social spheres. The economy is not a separate realm but is connected with social institutions. Only in what Polanyi calls “market society” is this connection absent.
