‘Why has economics turned out this way?’ A socio-economic note on the explanation of monism in economics

Arne Heise ()

The Journal of Philosophical Economics, 2016, vol. 10, issue 1, 81-101

Abstract: Economic science has – lamented by some, applauded by others – turned into a monistic discipline. In this short research note, a socio-economic answer to the question of why this has happened is provided by combining an economic approach to the market for economic ideas with a sociological approach to a scientific (power) field.
