About this title


As part of a series addressing a conceptual and technical crisis plaguing economics as a profession, this epistemological monograph by Rappaport (philosophy and economics, De Anza College; Cupertino, CA) purports to provide a description of the field that does justice to its actual practice irrespective of the methodology employed. In doing so, the author counters Donald McCloskey's recent metatheory of economics as simply rhetoric with the more traditional conception of methodology predicated on theory appraisal, predictive empiricism, economic models, and the pursuit of small-t truth. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
