A Estrutura das Revoluções Científicas na Economia e a Revolução Keynesiana
AbstractThe starting point of this paper is 'The structure of scientific revolutions' written by Thomas Kuhn. Kuhn´s framework essentially proposes that science(s) evolve through a sequence of periods of “normal science”, exceptionally interrupted by “scientific revolutions” leading to “paradigm shifts”. This paper analyzes whether this scheme can be applied to the evolution of Economics. Evidence suggests that the Keynesian Revolution can be treated as the best example of a kuhnian revolution in Economics; this model, however, is not so useful. to explain the fall of this paradigm.
