Description - Dewey, Pragmatism and Economic Methodology by Elias L. Khalil
The writings of the American Philosopher John Dewey contend systematically with metaphysics, epistemology, logic, philosophy education, aesthetics, social problems, and public policy. Given the recent revival of Dewey's legacy, it is surprising that the ramifications of his thought have not been explored in relation to economic theory and the philosophy of economics. This book brings together, for the first time, philosophers of pragmatism and economists interested in methodological questions. The main theoretical thrust of Dewey is to unite inquiry with behavior and this book's contributions assess this insight in the light of developments in modern American philosophy, social and legal theories, and the theoretical orientation of economics. This unique book contains impressive contributions from a range of different perspectives and its unique nature will make it required reading for academics involved with philosophy and economics.
