  1. Samuelson’s Operationally Meaningful Theorems: Reflections of E. B. Wilson’s Methodological Attitude.Juan Carvajalino - 2018 - Journal of Economic Methodology 25 (2):143-159.
    This paper sheds new light on Samuelson’s early methodology as presented in his Foundations of Economic Analysis by reflecting on the similarity between his mathematical economics and Edwin B.

Wilson defined mathematics as a language that consisted of three interconnected aspects: postulational, axiomatic, and operational.

    Ronald Coase has been a vigorous critic of mainstream economic theory, arguing that it is unrealistic and that a good theory is realistic. The attributes "realistic" and "unrealistic" appear in three senses at least in Coase: one related to narrow ness and breadth; another related to abstracting from particularities (and the issue of "blackboard economics"); and the third related to correspondence with the legal. This does not yet make Coase an advocate of realism. It is therefore separately argued that each (...)
