Pluralism, Academic Freedom, and Heterodox Economics

Author

Listed:
  • Robert F. Garnett Jr.

    (Texas Christian University, Fort Worth, TX)

Abstract

Frederic Lee’s laudable attempt to expand heterodox economists’ academic rights is vitiated by his narrow conception of pluralism as tolerance. The author proposes an alternative view of academic pluralism that is more consistent with the epistemological assumptions and ethical requirements of academic freedom, and more conducive to the flourishing of heterodox economics—and economics at large—as a scholarly community.JEL classification: A20, B40, B50
