Abstract

Con este artículo clásico, los profesores Nelson Y Winter dieron inicio a la corriente evolutiva de estirpe schumpeteriana para el análisis de los procesos de innovación tecnológica. Su propuesta metodológica mostró la necesidad de abordar el cambio tecnológico con un enfoque menos formal -como el que aún predomina en la economía y de elaborar una teoría fundamentada empíricamente que explicara los procesos de innovación concretos y reales, como el que ilustra el ejemplo de la química de colorantes sintéticos. Este trabajo muestra que este enfoque permite integrar elementos de otras disciplinas, los cuales no se pueden reducir al postulado de la racionalidad optimizadora. Este texto es un documento fundamental en la historia del análisis del cambio técnico y la innovación tecnológica, y es un punto de referencia imprescindible para todo aquél que se interese en el tema.
