Abstract

The article attempts to justify an alternative to conventional methodology of economics, as well as make a corresponding revision of the history of this discipline. Historical analysis is based in particular on the autobiographies and biographies of key personages in the history of the professionalization and institutionalization of economics. It explains why the discipline in its orthodox version, and for the most unorthodox directions, is cognitively sterile and socio-economico-politically very harmful. The article can be seen as a manifesto which calls for a radical change in the discipline. As a manifesto, it probably could be called "Economics: from repentance and resurrection", that is, I suggest to economists to repent of the harm that this discipline has brought and on the basis of this reflection to revive it in a different methodological framework that is able to make economics socially useful.
