Abstract

Have you ever had the experience of coming across an idea which is so simple, so obvious, and so worthwhile that you wonder at the need for expressing it – until, that is, you reflect on the fact that you hadn’t thought of it yourself, nor had you ever seen it stated quite in this way anywhere else?

If you have, and if you relish this experience, then you are in for a treat. For in “Towards an ‘Economic’ Theory of Methodology,” Professor Gerard Radnitzky does no more than point out the self evident, but does so in a manner which makes us sit up and take notice, and exclaim, ‘Why didn’t I think of that?’
