Boulding Among the Structuralists

Robert Solo

Review of Social Economy, 1997, vol. 55, issue 4, 432-444

Abstract: The character of structuralism is given as studies of systems of perception wherein the author interposes in organizing element between observation and perception. The organizing element for Piaget is the cognitive structure, for Foucault the epistime, for Kuhn the paradigm, for Solo ideology, and for Boulding the image. The idea and significance of “the image” in Boulding's book The Imageis analyzed and the place of that work in Boulding's grand project, to create a universal science, is indicated.
