Abstrakt

This article, in responding to Thornton's (this issue) depiction of how accounting might be extended to incorporate environmental issues, offers a critique of mainstream understandings of the accounting function. Specifically, we argue that Thornton's arguments are developed within doxic, or taken-for-granted, parameters regarding what accounting is and what it can be. Expanding the accounting domain whilst staying within these parameters leads to something more than the mere reproduction of the status quo; it leads to intensified commodification of the biosphere.
