    ‘Situational Analysis’ and Economics: An Attempt at Clarification.Alfonso Palacio-Vera - 2019 - Economics and Philosophy 35 (3):479-498.
    Popper’s ‘Situational Analysis’ constitutes his methodological proposal for the social sciences. We claim that the two hallmarks of SA are: that scientists assume they possess a ‘wider’ view of the problem-situation than actors do, and use the model as an ideal ‘benchmark’ scenario to identify the deviation of actors’ actual behaviour from the former. We argue that SA is not a generalization of the neoclassical theory of individual behaviour but captures instead the methodology adopted by modern behavioural economists. Last, we (...)

    “Situational Analysis” constitutes Popper’s methodological proposal for the social sciences. We argue that notwithstanding Popper’s claim that SA is an attempt to extend the methodology of neoclassical economics to the rest of the social sciences, the former is better interpreted as an extension of his view of the “method” of history to the “theoretical” social sciences. The reason is that, unlike neoclassical economics, Popper’s formulation of SA presupposes that social scientists exhibit a “more complete” view of the “logic of the (...)
