    Deduction, Induction and Abduction2023In: Routledge Handbook of Macroeconomic Methodology, Routledge, 2023Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The scope of deduction, induction and abduction (inference to the best explanation) in economics is discussed in this chapter. Although an essential and pervasive component in economic reasoning related to the analysis of open real-world systems, abduction is hardly mentioned in the methodology of economics literature. Explanatory features – often left unaccounted for by formal logic: deductivist methods – should be an important part of the rational evaluation of scientific hypotheses and inferences. A theory or model has to be a successful explainer of the facts we try to describe and analyse. For economics to be a relevant knowledge-generating project, given ever-changing ontological conditions, abduction should be given a central role in the inferences made in real-world contexts with incomplete information and uncertainty. Reasons are given for believing that ampliative abduction, as an inferential method, in most real-world economic contexts outperforms formal logic using both deduction and induction.

    On the use and misuse of theories and models in mainstream economics2016Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This collection of previously published and new papers is a major intervention in the on-going debate about the nature and future of economics. Instead of the present deductivist-formalist orientation of mainstream economics, Lars Syll advocates for the adoption of a more pluralist approach to economics, arguing for more realism and relevance with less insistence on mathematical modeling. This challenging and thought-provoking book will prove a stimulating read for researchers, academics and students of economics interested in the methodology and philosophy of economics.
