Example text

As a social science, economics assumes that societies do not conform to an ontological universalism. Then economics could not generate conclusions that are valid for every human society, independent of place and time. The other extreme view, that economics is valid only for specific societies only, cannot be assumed either because economics cannot explain individual cases, only aggregates. The assumption made by economics about its scope lies in between. Economics has two types of assumptions on the economic process: one is general, common to all human societies, and the other is specific to particular types of societies.

For the theory to be 35 refuted, all models of the family must fail. This algorithm requires that the number of models be finite; that is, it requires that the theory can generate only a limited number of possible auxiliary assumptions. If all models fail, the theory fails, and a new theory is needed. The number of models of a theory must be finite if the theory is going to be falsifiable. How to justify it? The criteria utilized to construct models refer to the use of auxiliary assumptions. But what these assumptions are about?

The logic of this method is thus clear. A complex reality is reduced to an abstract process—where there is repetition, and where regularities in empirical relationships can occur—with the use of a theory (alpha propositions); from 31 the theory, empirical predictions are logically derived (beta propositions), which are falsifiable; the falsification is made through statistical analysis. If the beta propositions are consistent with facts, there is no reason to reject the theory, and it is accepted as valid; if the beta propositions are refuted by facts, then the theory is rejected and, thus, a new theory is constructed.
