Scientific thinking: Aristotle is right, Leijonhufvud is wrong
Comment on Lars Syll on 'Mainstream macroeconomics distorts our understanding of economic reality'
Each paradigm stands or falls with its premises: “When the premises are certain, true, and primary, and the conclusion formally follows from them, this is demonstration, and produces scientific knowledge of a thing.” (Aristotle, Analytica)
The axiomatic foundations of Orthodoxy are wrong and this fully explains its failure. From this does not follow that axiomatization is wrong. This is Leijonhufvud's error.
