Abstract: This paper intends to present a particular analysis of Thorstein Veblen’s work. In this fashion, we have identified a central idea that commands his oeuvre: the non-teleologism. In addition, as a another central objective, the study pretends to establish a relationship between this hard core principle and the evolution of the ideological and political dichotomy between conservatism and reformism through United States history. For accomplish that, we use an epistemological justification that stands on the Strong Programme of Sociology of Science arguments. They suggest a relation, in a cause and consequence way, connecting the social context and the structures of scientific theories. Finally, this allows the suggestion of a general meaning for the Thorstein Veblen’s system of institutional economics.
