On Mathematical Thinking in Economics
The interest of scholars in the application of mathematics to the social sciences is particularly lively at the present time. This is especially true in economics, as well as in such allied disciplines as econometrics and economic statistics. And yet, critical works by economists on methodological problems remain rare, as witness the fact that Professor Milton Friedman, in his Essays in Positive Economics (1953), based many of his ideas on John Neville Keynes' volume of 1891.
