O discurso econômico e suas condições de possibilidade

Hugo da Gama Cerqueira ()

Textos para Discussão Cedeplar-UFMG from Cedeplar, Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais

Abstract: This paper investigates the emergence in the Modernity of an economic discourse intended to be autonomous from moral and political philosophy. The article demonstrates that the existence of economics as separated field of knowledge is recent and its creation related to the appearance of market economies, which might be regarded as an "objective condition for the possibility" of the economic discourse. The argument seeks to uncover the theoretical and practical assumptions of this particular branch of the social sciences in order to submit its "validity claims" to a critical scrutiny.
