Item description for Economics as Moral Science (Studies in Economic Ethics and Philosophy) by Bernard Hodgson...

Economics as Moral Science investigates the problem of the ethical neutrality of "mainstream" economic theory within the context of the methodology of economics as a science. Against the conventional wisdom, the author argues that there are serious moral presuppositions to the theory, but that economics could still count as a scientific or rational form of inquiry. The basic questions addressed - the ethical implications of economics, its status as a scientific mode of theory-construction, and the relation between these factors - are absolutely fundamental ones for an understanding of contemporary economics, the philosophy of the human sciences, and our current market culture. Moreover, the study provides a thorough philosophical analysis of the critical issues at stake from the inside, from the credible perspective of a particular, but foundational economic theory - the neoclassical theory of rational choice.

Reviews - What do customers think about Economics as Moral Science (Studies in Economic Ethics and Philosophy)?

economics not science  Jan 27, 2004
The main argument of this book is that economics is NOT value free and indeed classic economic theory reflects a complex value structure and economists select data to fit their value preconceptions.

Not an easy read but a valuable one. Recommended to anyone interested in the philosophy of economics or anyone who needs ammunition to counter various economic views.
