This study traces the development of methodology in philosophy and economics with particular focus on the work of Raymond Chambers. As well as analysing the reception on methodological lines, afforded his work by both academic and professional communities, the volume discusses some significant contributions by French and German scholars to the debate about why scientific communities have accepted some theories and rejected others.
