Abstract

Doctrinaire institutionalist dissenters blame (neo-)classical mainstream economies for having disregarded important determinants of human behavior which prevail even in the economic domain, namely the impact on human action of social institutions like traditions, religious or moral value systems, social organization etc. However, while the institutionalist dissent seems to blaze up at what constitutes the „right” question with which to start economic analysis, it ends up in fighting about what was the „appropriate” method to be employed in economic inquiry. Even so, beyond this weakness, the dissenting argument fails to recognize that the question of who applied the higher degree of iso- or homomorphism does lack generally decisive epistemological importance. Such shortcommings of doctrinaire dissenting reasoning are unfortunately but not surprisingly detrimental to the broad recognition of the central concern of evolutionary economics.
