    Both Schumpeter and Georgescu Roegen, contrary to other economists, focused their research on the methodology of economic science, using initially similar approaches. However they derived difftrent conclusions: while Shumpeter is always prone to separate politics from economics, Georgescu Roegen is not concerned by this separation. For this reason, Shumpeter's thought is partially accepted by the mainstream, and it contributes to develop new approaches, as the so-called evolutionary theories of firm. Georgescu Roegen, who was Shumpeter 's scholar, developed his thought on the methodology and epistemology in a different direction, which was, indeed, ignored by the mainstream. It is a stream of research which is much broader than the Shumpeterian one: while Schumpeter limits his investigation on the essence and on the principles of theoretical economics, Georgescu Roegen think about the totality of Sciences.
