Dualism in economic thinking : two views compared
AbstractIn this paper two articles on dualism are discussed. Following the chronological order of their publication, the first one is Julie Nelson?s (1992) article ?Gender, Metaphor, and the Definition of Economics? and the second one is ??Order out of Chaos? in Economics??, by Victoria Chick (1995). After the parts of both articles that are used for comparison are summarized, it is argued that the frameworks by Nelson and Chick are compatible. This approach supports the thesis that both authors essentially have the same point of view. The paper concludes by investigating the line of thought that emerges from the two articles and projecting this line into a suggested agenda for future research.
