    Si bien no es una tarea fácil definir qué es aquello que conforma los principios filosóficos no solo en un nivel interpretativo de la realidad (¿qué es lo que vemos?) sino también la forma en la que observamos esta realidad (¿Cómo lo vemos?) y el uso que le damos a esta información, voy a hacer una pequeña aproximación a las bases del pensamiento económico guiándome a través de la exposición de Lavoie, que las divide en cuatro: La epistemología, el individuo frente a la sociedad, el concepto del homo economicus, y la definición de la economía como ciencia. It is not an easy task to define what it is that makes up the philosophical principles not only in the level of interpretation of reality (what do we see?) but also in the way we see this reality (how do we see?) and how we make use of this information. I do a little closer research to the foundations of economic thought guiding me through Lavoie exposure, which divides the foundations into four: Epistemology, the individual against society, the concept of homo economicus, and the definition of economics as a science.
