I need a solid resource on 'the philosophy of science'
Everyone knows this famous raking of so called sciences: https://xkcd.com/435/
Good question, where does economics fit in? And what is science?
How can I participate in so called scientific debate without knowing what science is, in the first place?
I have a feeling that in economics in general you have much story telling and anecdotes, as compared to the amount of 'science' - whatever that word really means.
From 14:26 in the video Stanford professors Dave Evans and Bill Burnett argue that in college you learn how to answer questions. In graduate school, you learn how to ask them. Sorry, this is bonkers to me.
Any update on this?
Science is a method for finding truth. Make observations.
Propose a hypothesis.Design and perform an experiment to test the hypothesis.
Analyze your data to determine whether to accept or reject the hypothesis. The end.
Is it the right place to ask such questions? I'm not sure. Am I a troll for asking such questions? Your take?
