Da teleologia para a evolução

Vamos ver o que o pessoal da UNICAMP tem a dizer. Não consegui achar um link com download livre. Então não posso comentar ainda se o artigo entra na discussão que houve sobre o Darwinismo universal após a publicação do artigo do Hodgson.

The characterization of neoclassical economics as a “taxonomic science” and the understanding of the evolutionary possibilities of economic theorizing are central aspects of Thorstein Veblens institutional thought. This paper seeks to provide elements for a contemporary resumption of such Veblenian elaborations. Thus, we aim to re-establish the dialogue between economics and biology, focusing on the historical and methodological spheres of the conversation. The first part of the paper demonstrates that evolutionary biologys analysis of the pre-Darwinian past relies on the same principles that Veblen used to build his criticism of neoclassical economics — namely, the principles of typology. The paper also shows how this approach had a negative impact on the theoretical elaborations of pre-Darwinian biology, and how it contributed to the problematic foundations of neoclassical economics. The paper further focuses on the key methodological principles of Charles Darwins works, highlighting their importance beyond the field of biology, and pointing out that a Darwinian approach constitutes an ontological perspective, premised on what Geoffrey Hodgson and Thorbjørn Knudsen denote as “generalized Darwinism.” Finally, the paper discusses certain concepts in the general theoretical debate of Darwinian ontology to stress the revolutionary role of Charles Darwin as a founder of this perspective and to explore the relationship between the ontological perspective and biological analogy. generalized Darwinism neoclassical economics pre-Darwinian biology typology
