Popper and Economic Methodology by Thomas A. Boylan

Book Description

This new book, under the impressive editorship of Thomas Boylan and Paschal O'Gorman, explores a number of major themes central to the work of Karl Popper. The tensions that have resulted from Popperian thought are well documented. How can mainstream orthodox economics be falsifiable while privileging its core of rationality as unquestionable? This book includes expert contributions from thinkers such as Tony Lawson, K. Vela Velupillai and John McCall, who discuss this issue with renewed academic rigour.

Hahn and Economic Methodology by Thomas A. Boylan Hahn and Economic Methodology, Hardback (January 2012)

Frank Hahn's powerful critiques of current economic methodology and innovative reconstructions of economic theorizing have long challenged the views of practising economists. This title presents a study of Hahn's methodological writings. It is suitable for scholars with an interest in the philosophy of economics.

Beyond Rhetoric and Realism in Economics by Thomas A. Boylan Beyond Rhetoric and Realism in Economics, Paperback (June 1995)

Boylan and O'Gorman inject a fresh empiricist voice into the debate on economic methodology. They strike a reasonable middle ground between the extremes of scientific realism and the rhetoric of economics.

Political Economy and Colonial Ireland by Thomas A. Boylan Political Economy and Colonial Ireland, Hardback (January 1992)

In 19th century Ireland, consensus was sought in the new discipline of political economy which claimed to transcend all divisions. The authors explore the failure of that mission in the wake of the great famine of 1846-47.
