Rejoinder to Methodology...?! Why? Some Methodological Aspects of the Controversy between Mainstream Economics and Institutionalism by Peter Galbács

Beata Stępień

Abstract

This question, and the rejoinder itself, were inspired by the article of Peter Galbacs, in which he claims that the reason mainstream and heterodox economics cannot converge their perspectives is the methodology we employ. But do the distant methodological standpoints preclude convergence? The answer to these questions depends, for me, on a clarification of the following areas in this long - going, active, but still unresolved dispute: 1. the way we define, treat and use the methodology in our reasoning, 2. the way we justify the choice of assumptions serving as the methodological restraint, 3. the way we understand and operationalize rationality.
