    En este trabajo se presenta la Teoría de los Modos de Pensamiento desarrollada por Sheila Dow y se emplea la misma para realizar un recorrido por cuatro corrientes de pensamiento diferentes en Economía. En concreto, se pone de manifiesto como uno de los elementos diferenciales entre las mismas es de naturaleza metodológica: el hecho de que se sustentan en el empleo de un Modo de Pensamiento Babilónico/Estoico (MPB/E) o de un Modo de Pensamiento Cartesiano/Euclídeo (MPC/E). Esta diferencia metodológica permite entender una parte sustantiva del desencuentro existente entre las diferentes corrientes de pensamiento que cohabitan en Economía. De forma añadida, se demuestra la inexistencia de un “pensamiento único” en Economía y se constata la presencia de disensos fundamentales en el pensamiento económico actual.
