Pluralism, Academic Freedom, and Heterodox Economics
AbstractFrederic Leeâ€™s laudable attempt to expand heterodox economistsâ€™ academic rights is vitiated by his narrow conception of pluralism as tolerance. The author proposes an alternative view of academic pluralism that is more consistent with the epistemological assumptions and ethical requirements of academic freedom, and more conducive to the flourishing of heterodox economicsâ€”and economics at largeâ€”as a scholarly community.JEL classification: A20, B40, B50
