Abstract

The article aims to show how the epistemology of science can reassess the criteria of simplicity in economic research. It is made with this objective an evaluation of simplicity in the economy since the classic works of Adam Smith and David Ricardo. Then it extends the concept to work in Arrow neoclassical economics and Varian. Finally, it outlines the scope of the concept of simplicity in the economy to the contemporary field of rational choice theory, following the working of Robert Nozick.
