Special Session organized by
EAEPE Annual Conference 2018 Nice, France, 6-8 September 2018
The precise definition of ‘heterodox economics’ remains contested. Various definitions have been put forward in the literature of such aggregates as ‘mainstream economics’ – as distinct e.g. from neoclassical or marginalist economics – and ‘heterodox economics’, as part of, or distinct from, ‘political economy’ or related concepts. The session will therefore investigate and discuss the nature, role and relevance of heterodox economics from a theoretical, institutional and historical point of view.
Two editors of the recently published Routledge Handbook of Heterodox Economics, along with a number of its contributors, will present papers and take part in the discussions.
Possible topics include but are not restricted to
- − The definition of heterodox economics and its distinctive features
- − The relationship between heterodox economics and
- − the mainstream
- − specific strands of thought such as, e.g., Marxist or PostKeynesian economics
- − specific issues, such as money, institutions, evolution, etc.
- − specific analytical methods, such as evolutionary game theory, agent-based models, etc.
- − the meta-theoretic foundations of economics
- − pluralismSubmissions
