Rationality, institutions, and economic methodology by Uskali Mäki( )

24 editions published between 1993 and 2006 in English and held by 1,659 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Neo-classical economics, with its emphasis on general equilibrium, has developed a tightly knit group of theories of great rigour. However, it lacks a conceptualization of organisation, institutions, structure and change and has virtually nothing to say about the role of norms and rules in economic behaviour. Such notions are of great significance in institutional economics, with its emphasis on property rights, contract and organizational forms. But institutional economics lacks the rigour and elegance of general equilibrium theory. Rationality, Institutions and Economic Methodology looks at ways to increase the scope and power of institutional economics. Different approaches to economic methodology are considered and the broader notions of rationality offered by institutional economics are discussed, as are the methodological problems of evolutionary and institutional change
Philosophy of economics by Dov M Gabbay( )

15 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 1,171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Philosophy of Economics investigates the foundational concepts and methods of economics, the social science that analyzes the production, distribution and consumption of goods and services. This groundbreaking collection, the most thorough treatment of the philosophy of economics ever published, brings together philosophers, scientists and historians to map out the central topics in the field. The articles are divided into two groups. Chapters in the first group deal with various philosophical issues characteristic of economics in general, including realism and Lakatos, explanation and testing, modelling and mathematics, political ideology and feminist epistemology. Chapters in the second group discuss particular methods, theories and branches of economics, including forecasting and measurement, econometrics and experimentation, rational choice and agency issues, game theory and social choice, behavioural economics and public choice, geographical economics and evolutionary economics, and finally the economics of scientific knowledge. This volume serves as a detailed introduction for those new to the field as well as a rich source of new insights and potential research agendas for those already engaged with the philosophy of economics. Provides a bridge between philosophy and current scientific findings. Encourages multi-disciplinary dialogue. Covers theory and applications
The methodology of positive economics : reflections on the Milton Friedman legacy by Uskali Mäki( Book )

19 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 579 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Milton Friedman's 1953 essay 'The methodology of positive economics' remains the most cited, influential, and controversial piece of methodological writing in twentieth-century economics. Since its appearance, the essay has shaped the image of economics as a scientific discipline, both within and outside of the academy. At the same time, there has been an ongoing controversy over the proper interpretation and normative evaluation of the essay. Perceptions have been sharply divided, with some viewing economics as a scientific success thanks to its adherence to Friedman's principles, others taking it as a failure for the same reason. In this book, a team of world-renowned experts in the methodology of economics cast new light on Friedman's methodological arguments and practices from a variety of perspectives. It provides the 21st century reader with an invaluable assessment of the impact and contemporary significance of Friedman's seminal work
The economic world view : studies in the ontology of economics by Uskali Mäki( Book )

15 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The beliefs of economists are not solely determined by empirical evidence in direct relation to the theories and models they hold. Economists hold 'ontological presuppositions', fundamental ideas about the nature of being which direct their thinking about economic behaviour. In this volume, leading philosophers and economists examine these hidden presuppositions, searching for a 'world view' of economics. What properties are attributed to human individuals in economic theories, and which are excluded? Does economic man exist? Do markets have an essence? Do macroeconomic aggregates exist? Is the economy a mechanism, the functioning of which is governed by a limited set of distinct causes? What are the methodological implications of different ontological starting points? This collection, which establishes economic ontology as a coordinated field of study, will be of great value to economists and philosophers of social sciences

Scientific imperialism : exploring the boundaries of interdisciplinarity by Uskali Mäki( )

7 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The growing body of research on interdisciplinarity has encouraged a more in depth analysis of the relations that hold among academic disciplines. In particular, the incursion of one scientific discipline into another discipline's traditional domain, also known as scientific imperialism, has been a matter of increasing debate. Following this trend, Scientific Imperialism aims to bring together philosophers of science and historians of science interested in the topic of scientific imperialism and, in particular, interested in the conceptual clarification, empirical identification, and normative assessment of the idea of scientific imperialism. Thus, this innovative volume has two main goals. Indeed, the authors first seek to undiferstand interdisciplinary relations emerging from the incursion of one scientific discipline into one or more other disciplines, such as in cases in which the conventions and procedures of one discipline or field are imposed on other fields; or more weakly when a scientific discipline seeks to explain phenomena that are traditionally considifered proper of another discipline's domain. Secondly, the authors explore ways of distinguishing imperialistic from non-imperialistic interactions between disciplines and research fields. The first sustained study of scientific imperialism, this volume will appeal to postgraduate students and postdoctoral researchers interested in fields such as Science and Technology Studies, Sociology of Science & Technology, Philosophy of Science, and History of Science

Economics and methodology : crossing boundaries : proceedings of the IEA conference held in Bergamo, Italy by Roger Backhouse( )

5 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume brings economics and methodology closer through a series of six methodological case-studies, each of which is discussed by a practitioner in the relevant field as well as a specialist in methodology. The objective is a better understanding of economics as a scientific discipline and insights into the way methodological discussion can inform practice. Among the topics discussed are: individualism in game theory, the concepts of involuntary unemployment and externalities, free riding as an economic mechanism, the scientific credentials of the debate over stabilization policy, and the construction of the theory of consumer demand
