A economia evolucionista: um capítulo sistêmico da teoria econômica?

Textos para Discussão Cedeplar-UFMG from Cedeplar, Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais
Several authors have detected a paradigm shift in contemporary science: from a reductionist or mechanicist approach to a holistic or systemic one. This transition in paradigms should be perceptible in several disciplines, starting in biology and extending itself to others areas. In light of the origins and main characteristics of the evolutionary economics, this article discusses whether it is possible to recognize the emergence of a new paradigm in economics. The evidences provided, it is argued, allow us to state the existence of a systemic approach in economic thought.
