Ideology in Science and Economics
1999 (English)Book (Other scientific)
The main topic of this volume of "Studies in Ethics and Economics" is the role of ideology in science and economics. Mikael Stenmark discusses the place of ideology in science, and Hans Larsson argues that there are implicit assumptions in economic theory which can facilitate its use for ideological purposes.
Gert Helgesson tries to clarify what economists mean by "theory" and "model", and Göran Collste discusses what it means to formulate ethical principles for making priorities in health care. Per Sundman analyses different ways of applying the notion of democratic legitimacy in the context of business corporations, and Mikael Lindfelt argues for a virue ethical approach to professional ethics.
