    Philippe Mongin (forthcoming). Choice-Based Cardinal Utility. A Tribute to Patrick Suppes. Journal of Economic Methodology 23 (3):1-21.
    We reexamine some of the classic problems connected with the use of cardinal utility functions in decision theory, and discuss Patrick Suppes's contributions to this field in light of a reinterpretation we propose for these problems. We analytically decompose the doctrine of ordinalism, which only accepts ordinal utility functions, and dis- tinguish between several doctrines of cardinalism, depending on what components of ordinalism they specifically reject. We identify Suppes's doctrine with the major deviation from ordinalism that conceives of utility functions (...)

    Lawrence Boland (forthcoming). Kuhn Vs. Popper by Way of Lakatos and the Cold War. Journal of Economic Methodology.
    David Hume’s Treatise on Human Nature famously fell `deadborn from the press’ because it was too far ahead of its time. Basu’s book is one of a number published in recent years that suggest we are at last ready to put its precepts into action.1 Modern game theory provides a framework that makes Hume’s insights genuinely applicable, and I totaly agree with Basu that this is not only the right way forward, but that it now looksincreasingly likely that this is (...)

    Antoinette Baujard & Muriel Gilardone (forthcoming). Sen is Not a Capability Theorist. Journal of Economic Methodology:1-19.
    This paper aims to clarify the status of capability in Sen?s idea of justice. Sen?s name is so widely associated with the concept of capability that commentators often assume that his contribution to the study of justice amounts to a capability theory, albeit underdeveloped. We argue that such a reading is misleading. Taking Sen?s reticence about operationalization seriously, we show that his contribution is inconsistent with a capability theory. Instead, we defend the idea that the capability approach plays a heuristic (...)

    Steve Fleetwood (forthcoming). The Critical Realist Conception of Open and Closed Systems. Journal of Economic Methodology:1-28.
    The critical realist conception of open and closed (O recognise that genuinely open social systems would be impossible; avoid polarities or dualisms where either there are event regularities and open systems, or there are no event regularities and closed systems and accept partial regularities and partially open systems; and understand that orthodox economics is not based upon event regularities, laws or Humean empiricism. The objective of this paper is to?take stock? of these recent criticisms.
