THE CRITICAL ANALYSIS OF SUFFICIENT ATTRIBUTES OF THE EMPIRICAL ASSERTIONS IN LIGHT OF THE APLICATION OF THE METHODOLOGICAL PRINCIPLE OF APPEARANCE

Adrian Moroşan (), Raluca Sava and Renate Bratu

Revista Economica, 2012, vol. Supplement, issue 1, 515-519

Abstract: In this paper we claimthat the principle of appearance should becomea methodological premise of all economic researchers. Because the primary observations are at the core of empiric assertions, they should meet, at the same time, the following prerequisites: to be synthetic sentences about the world we live in and to be non-debatable. A consequence of the principle of appearance is however the logical impossibility of meeting both conditions at the same time.We willanalysein this paper the impact of this problem for the economic scientific research. In order to limit the sphere of inclusion of the ?empirical assertion? category, we will also try, in the following, to establish the adequate criteria which an assertion must meet in order to be considered empirical, or, to put it in another way, the sufficient attributes of empirical assertions in general and of economic empirical assertions, in particular.
