Understanding Economics as a (Social) Science?

VOPROSY ECONOMIKI, 2012, vol. 10

Abstract: (On the Book by M. Boumans, J. Davis "Economic Methodology. Understanding Economics as a Science") This review discusses the latest textbook on economic methodology. It shows that its authors think of the philosophy of science as primarily the philosophy of "hard", natural sciences and have not tried to interpret economic theory as a?social science. At the same time the book is characterized by its attention towards more recent methodological approaches, in particular, to the rhetoric of economics, and this direction might be considered as promising.
