J. M. Keynes's position on the general applicability of mathematical, logical and statistical methods in economics and social science

Synthese 76 (1):1 - 24 (1988)

The author finds no support for the claim that J. M. Keynes had severe reservations, in general, as opposed to particular, concerning the application of mathematical, logical and statistical methods in economics. These misinterpretations rest on the omission of important source material as well as a severe misconstrual ofThe Treatise on Probability (1921).
