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.
Elias L. Khalilwas Director of the Behavioral Research Council, American Institute for Economic Research. He is currently an adjunct professor at the Department of Economics, Vassar College, USA.
