“The importance of McCloskey’s work cannot be overstated.”— Quarterly Journal of Speech


¬ The importance of McCloskey's work cannot be overstated. ¬ Quarterly Journal of Speech ¬ McCloskey's target is the pretentious scientism in which economists couch their mutual persuasions¬ a scientism that lingers on as the near-official language of economics discourse long after its inadequacies have been recognized by philosophers and scientists. ¬ New York Review of Books ¬ McCloskey must be credited with the singular achievement of introducing the major philosophers of the twentieth century into a discussion of the methodology of economics. ¬ Times Literary Supplement ¬ McCloskey takes aim at the ¬ dismal science's' scientific pretensions in this pathfinding, elegantly written, and intellectually razor-sharp book. ¬ Washington Post ¬ The most thoughtful book on economics in years. ¬ Philadelphia Enquirer McCloskey must be credited with the singular achievement of introducing the major philosophers of the twentieth century into a discussion of the methodology of economics. -- Times Literary Supplement McCloskey takes aim at the 'dismal science's' scientific pretensions in this pathfinding, elegantly written, and intellectually razor-sharp book. -- Washington Post The most thoughtful book on economics in years. -- Philadelphia Enquirer
