    Mientras la realidad se transforma a gran ritmo, las ideas de ciencia y de conocimiento científico entran en crisis. Esta crisis también se manifiesta en los estudios empresariales: muchos afirman que la Economía de la Empresa no es ciencia, sino un conjunto de conocimientos diversos, débilmente conectados entre sí. Otros se pierden en investigaciones alejadas de la realidad, y un último grupo no consigue remontar un enfoque meramente practicista. Por ello, estimamos que es un buen momento para recordar los fundamentos que sustentan una ciencia: su objeto formal y material y su método. Para ello se realizará una exposición sintética del pensamiento del profesor Soldevilla. / While real life is changing, the idea of science and scientific knowledge enters in crisis. This crisis appear in the managerial studies too: many people affirm that business management is not a science, but a set of different knowledges, weakly interconnected. Another group is getting lost in investigations far away from the reality, and a last group does not overcome a practical approach. We think that this is a good moment to remember the foundations of a science: its formal and material object and its method.
