Editorial Reviews

"Readers with a strong interest in philosophical and methodological issues will have much to learn from this book. It provides a very careful description and evaluation of the rhetoric and realism programs in economic methodology. Furthermore, it is one of the few discussions of economic methodology that recognizes that contemporary analytical philosophy abounds with many different responses to the breakdown of positivist philosophy of science."-"Journal of Economic Literature
