Summary
Economic methodologists frequently complain that they are ignored by the mainstream. Practicing economists claim that methodology has nothing useful to say to them. In this typically provocative book, Lawrence Boland takes issue with both sides, arguing that there has been too much 'methodology for methodology's sake' and that mainstream economics might benefit by using methodology to take a critical look at economics theory. Throughout, the essays emphasize the positive role of criticism as a central part of intellectual activity
