The Popperian Legacy in Economics

Edited by Neil de Marchi

in Cambridge Books from Cambridge University Press

Abstract: This volume examines just why and in what sense, Sir Karl Popper's view of empirical falsifiability as the distinguishing characteristic of science has found appeal among economists. The limitations of this tenet, both for a philosophy of science and as a guideline to economic inquiry, are examined, as are several of the proposed alternatives.
