    Critical Realism and the Althusserian Legacy.Brian O’ Boyle & Terrence McDonough - 2016 - Journal for the Theory of Social Behaviour 46 (2):143-164.
    This paper undertakes an historical re-evaluation of Louis Althusser's philosophical legacy for modern Marxism. While Althusser self-consciously sought to defend the scientific character of Marxism, many of his closest followers eventually exited the Marxian paradigm for a post-structural post-Marxism. We argue that this development was predominately rooted in a series of philosophical errors that proved fatal in a period of retreat for European socialism. There has always been, however, a second post-Althusserian legacy associated with the critical realist conception of Marxism (...)

    Bourgeois Ideology and Mathematical Economics – A Reply to Tony Lawson.Brian O'Boyle & Terrence McDonough - 2017 - Economic Thought 6 (1):16.
    This paper challenges Tony Lawson's account of the relationship between mainstream economics and ideology along two key axes. First off, we argue that Newtonian physics has been the primary version of pro-science ideology within mainstream economics, rather than mathematics per se. Secondly, we argue that the particular uses of mathematics within mainstream economics have always been ideological in the pro-capitalist sense of the term. In order to defend these claims we develop a line of argument that Lawson has thus far (...)
