Abstract

The study of economics as discourse requires a perspective that focuses on the relationships among knowledge (or truth), discourse (or language), and meaning. Central to this task is the recognition that the conduct of economic analysis uses words and that words embody meanings that are applied to the object of study, but do not necessarily derive from that object although they define that object for us.
