Why is it important?

This book is one of the most important economic publications on the Polish market of this decade. The book appeared in Polish but its strong international flavor is worth noting. The foreword was written by Uskali Mäki, a well known Finnish philosopher of science and one of the most esteemed contemporary philosophers of economics.


Metaeconomics is an outstanding work not because it finds the best new solutions to the key issues in the dispute within the frameworks of the philosophy of science and the philosophy of economics referring to the nature of the economic world, the possibilities and limitations in acquiring knowledge of that world, the methods of learning about the economic world, the role of models, the significance of causality, the role of facts and judgments, the understanding of rationality, the comprehension of the effectiveness and welfare, and the significance of ethics in economic behaviour. A fundamental merit of this book is the correct identification of what constitutes the essence of the philosophy of economics. This is accompanied by a competent, considerate, well structured, erudite presentation and assessment of the issues discussed. It demonstrates the pluralism of approaches and a well-balanced attitude to their evaluation which deserves special attention.
