Why has economics turned out this way?’ A socio-economic note on the explanation of monism in economics

Arne Heise

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: Economic science has – lamented by some, applauded by others – turned into a monistic discipline. In this short research note, a socio-economic answer to the question of why this has happened is provided by combining an economic approach to the market for economic ideas with a sociological approach to a scientific (power) field.
