    University of North Carolina at Greensboro Most approaches to the philosophy of the natural and social sciences are basedon completed scientific investigations. However, there are many importantcases in science in which testing is incomplete. These cases are termed suspendedtrials and are particularly significant in biomedical and allied health fields. Initially,the authors' interest in suspended trials was piqued by a controversialmethod for assisting autistic children known as facilitated communication.

    The ArgumentWhile there has been muchattention given to experiment in modern science studies, there has been astoundingly little concern spared over the practice ofquanitataivemeasurment.Thus myths about the unreasonable effectiveness of mathematice in science still abound. This paper presents: An explicit mathematical model of the stabilization of quantitative constants in a mathematical science to rival older Bayesian and classical accounts;a framework for writing a history of pracitces with regard to treatment of quantitative measurement erroe; resourece for the comparative sociology of differing (...)

    Abstract: The paper argues that mainstream economics and mainstream philosophy of natural science had much in common during the period 1945-1965. It examines seven common features of the two fields and suggests a number of historical developments that might help explain these similarities. The historical developments include: the Vienna Circle connection, the Samuelson-Harvard-Foundations connection, and the Cold War operations research connection.

  • Is History of Economic Thought a „Serious” Subject?,„.Maria Cristina Marcuzzo - 2008 - Erasmus Journal for Philosophy and Economics 1 (1):107-123.
    The purpose of this paper is to clarify the nature of researchmethods in the history of economic thought. In reviewing the“techniques” which are involved in the discipline, four broadercategories are identified: a) textual exegesis; b) “rationalreconstructions”; c) “contextual analysis”; and d) “historical narrative”.After examining these different styles of doing history of economicthought, the paper addresses the question of its appraisal, namely whatis good history of economic thought. Moreover, it is argued that there isa distinction to be made between doing economics (...)
