9780521412568: The Claims of Common Sense: Moore, Wittgenstein, Keynes and the Social Sciences

The Claims of Common Sense investigates the importance for the social sciences of the ideas developed in Cambridge philosophy between the two World Wars. John Coates examines the thought of Moore, Ramsey, Wittgenstein and Keynes, and offers new evidence that there was a far closer collaboration among them than has hitherto been supposed. He then proposes that Wittgenstein's and Keynes's ideas on the economy of ordinary language present a way of bridging the current gap between the philosophy and practice of social science.

From the Back Cover:

In this compelling book, John B. Davis examines the change and development in Keynes's philosophical thinking, from his earliest work through to The general theory, arguing that Keynes came to believe himself mistaken about a number of his early philosophical concepts. The author begins by looking at the unpublished Apostles papers, written under the influence of the philosopher G. E. Moore. These display the tensions in Keynes's early philosophical views and outline his philosophical concepts of the time, including the concept of intuition. Davis then shows how Keynes's later philosophy is implicit in the economic argument of The general theory. He argues that Keynes's philosophy had by this time changed radically, and that he had abandoned the concept of intuition for the concept of convention. The author sees this as being the central idea in The general theory, and looks at the philosophical nature of this concept of convention in detail.

Review:

"John Coates's The Claims of Common Sense: Moore, Wittgenstein, Keynes and the social sciences is a very ambitious book." David R. Amdrews, Review of Social Economy
