Abstract and Keywords

This article focuses on the relations between the work of its author on methodology, developments in philosophy of science, and the contributions of other methodologists. It explains how its work derives from philosophy of science, as the subject was understood in the 1970s. It is autobiographical, as its story may help readers to understand the outpouring of writing on economic methodology beginning in the 1970s. It sketches a view of philosophical methodology that articulates the roles that reflection, analysis and study of economics ought to play. It summarizes the views on economic methodology that are developed in the principal contributions of its author. It also relates that work to the contributions of other writers on economic methodology, particularly Uskali Mäki and Alexander Rosenberg.

Keywords: philosophy, science, economics, Uskali Mäki, Alexander Rosenberg
