Reviews: Milton's Positivism Found Wanting [Book Review]

Philosophy of the Social Sciences 41 (3):398-419 (2011)
Abstract
Milton Friedman’s 1953 essay created controversy and consternation amongst economists. It provided a prescription, based on empirically generated predictive success, of how to do economics, yet many saw it as a concession of the search for truth and theoretical beauty within the discipline. This article reviews a 50th anniversary festschrift devoted to views of the essay. The purpose of the volume is to provide today’s reader with the essay, responses, and a guide to interpreting it. The volume is selective and several contributors have their own agendas, but the feeling of tumult the essay still engenders is nicely conveyed
