Epistemología de la Economía. Comentarios sobre el Paradigma Neoclásico (I)


  • Silva Vegas, Gerardo


The central aim of this investigation es our own poverty, it is a South side perspective (Africa or Latin-America). However, we do not advocate for an empirical research; we analyze theories intending to explain from the North such an economic reality. Theories, as logic-deductive bodies, can't be taken isolated from the thinking context where they are developed. Philosophical and ethic basis supporting them make necessarily part of the logical structure, although, they could not be explicitly declared. Thus, the chaining between ethic principles, economic theories, phenomena explanation and the consequences of economic policy adjudge let us understand the reality and man's action on it, with a transparency difficult to reach whether dealing with the isolated theory. This way, new scopes for alternative theoretical searching are open before hegemonic paradigms, when different logic-deductive structures are constructed beginning from new philosophical and ethic basis and their validity remains to be settle by reality checking.
