About this product
- DescriptionThis book offers a comprehensive overview of the structure, strategy and methods of assessment of orthodox theoretical ecomics. In Part I Professor Hausman explains how ecomists theorise, emphasising the essential underlying commitment of ecomists to a vision of ecomics as a separate science. In Part II he defends the view that the basic axioms of ecomics are 'inexact' since they deal only with the 'major' causes; unlike most writers on ecomic methodology, the author argues that it is the rules that ecomists espouse rather than their practice that is at fault. Part III links the conception of ecomics as a separate science to the fact that ecomic theories offer reasons and justifications for human actions, t just their causes. With its lengthy appendix introducing relevant issues in philosophy of science, this book is a major addition to philosophy of ecomics and of social science.
