Economics and Hermeneutics

Economics and Philosophy 5 (02):209- (1989)
In a recent article in this journal, D. Wade Hands reviewed Charles Taylor's two-volume work, Philosophical Papers . Hands predicts that Taylor's work will have no impact on the philosophy of economics. This may indeed turn out to be the case; but if so, it will only be because the profession is not listening. Of course, it is typical of the profession to be more interested in exporting its product than in learning from other disciplines. This is exemplified in Hands's use of the term “philosophy of economics” – philosophy is the handmaiden of the highly successful enterprise of economics. But this journal is called Economics and Philosophy , which means that a conversation requiring an openness and attentiveness is called for between economics and philosophy.
