Abstract

‘On Austrian Methodology’ is eloquent testimony to the functioning of the interdisciplinary approach, for its author, philosopher Robert Nozick, nonetheless tackles an economic school of thought. Its thoroughness, its insight, its sheer brilliance, are proof positive that the boundaries that have been erected between the various academic disciplines are needless and artificial. Although I shall have many critical remarks to make about the article, none of them can be fairly attributed to the fact that it was penned by a philosopher and not an economist.
