AbstractThe presence or absence of dualism can be crucial to the development of economic theory and our understanding of it. Dualism is inherent to the methodology of mainstream economics. But, while it is often assumed in the conventional terminology of economics, dualism is not a necessary characteristic of economics. The content and significance of a nondualistic model of thought are set out in this paper. A move beyond dualism at the methodological level would promote more tolerance among economists, but it would also provide a sound methodological footing for constructing and using economic theory specifically to address policy issues rather than the internal theoretical concerns of dualistic systems of thought.
