  • Unknowns, Black Swans and the risk/uncertainty distinction
    • Authors: Faulkner P; Feduzi A, Runde J.
      Pages: 1279 - 1302
      Abstract: AbstractTony Lawson’s work on probability and uncertainty is both an important contribution to the heterodox canon as well as a notable early strand of his ongoing enquiry into the nature of social reality. In keeping with most mainstream and heterodox discussions of uncertainty in economics, however, Lawson focuses on situations in which the objects of uncertainty are imagined and can be stated in a way that, potentially at least, allows them to be the subject of probability judgments. This focus results in a relative neglect of the kind of uncertainties that flow from the existence of possibilities that do not even enter the imagination and which are therefore ruled out as the subject of probability judgments. This paper explores uncertainties of the latter kind, starting with and building on Donald Rumsfeld’s famous observations about known unknowns and unknown unknowns. Various connections are developed, first with Nassim Taleb’s Black Swan, and then with Lawson’s Keynes-inspired interpretation of uncertainty.

    • Authors: Al-Amoudi I; Latsis J.
      Pages: 1303 - 1321
      Abstract: AbstractThe Cambridge Social Ontology (CSO) programme’s inability to generate a meaningful dialogue with mainstream economics is difficult to understand by mere reference to judgmental rationality and without reference to CSO’s ideological configuration. Our paper uses an économie des conventions framework to draw systematic comparisons between CSO’s ideological configuration and the ideological configurations of mainstream economic theories and practice. The resulting analysis helps us to understand not only why CSO generated little response from the mainstream, but also how CSO might renew its critique in ways that might be more likely to produce a response.

  • Critical ethical naturalism and the transformation of economics
    • Authors: Martins N.
      Pages: 1323 - 1342
      Abstract: AbstractIn this article I shall argue that critical ethical naturalism, an ethical position elaborated by Tony Lawson, can help understand Lawson’s critique of modern mainstream economics. According to critical ethical naturalism, human action should be concerned with removing obstacles that lie in the way of human development and flourishing. The attempt of transforming economics into a discipline that contributes to human development, rather than being an obstacle to such a development, can be seen as an exercise driven by critical ethical naturalism, albeit in a more implicit way in Lawson’s earlier writings, and in a more explicit way in more recent writings. But the significance of critical ethical naturalism, as elaborated by Lawson, goes well beyond the problem of transforming economics, and so I shall also highlight some more general implications of this ethical position before addressing the specific problem of transforming economics. To do so, I will first present Lawson’s critical ethical naturalism, while showing the relevance of his social ontology for the study of ethics at various levels of generality, including meta-ethics, ethical theory and applied ethics.

  • Ontology and the history of economic thought: the case of
           anti-reductionism in the work of Friedrich Hayek
    • Authors: Lewis P.
      Pages: 1343 - 1365
      Abstract: AbstractTony Lawson has long advocated an ‘ontological turn’ in the history of economic thought. This essay aims to contribute towards that goal by considering how one aspect of the methodology adopted by a prominent heterodox economist was informed by ontological considerations. The economist is Friedrich Hayek, the aspect of his methodology concerns the possibility of reductionism, while the ontological category that informs his anti-reductionist methodology—though not, as we shall see, in a wholly consistent way—is that of ‘emergence’. The account presented below suggests that the notion of emergence played an increasingly important, and also increasingly explicit, role in the arguments Hayek mounts against reductionism in his postwar work on theoretical psychology and social theory. In the case of his theoretical psychology, notwithstanding the fact that he had access to a set of concepts that afforded him the opportunity to mount an emergentist case against reductionism, Hayek’s most prominent argument against reductionism was, and remained, computational—rather than emergentist—in nature. In the case of his mature, post-1960 social theory, however, Hayek explicitly advanced a consistently ‘emergentist’ case against reductionism, based on the importance of organising relations for the generation of higher-level structural properties such as the coordinative powers of the liberal market economy. The implications of this ontologically informed discussion of Hayek’s arguments against reductionism for existing interpretations of Hayek’s work are considered.

  • Formalising economics: social change, values, mechanics and mathematics in
           economic discourse
    • Authors: Milonakis D.
      Pages: 1367 - 1390
      Abstract: AbstractThe mathematisation and formalisation of economic science has been one of the most important features of the development of economic science in the latter part of the twentieth century. What were the causes behind this ubiquitous mathematisation of economic science' Recent scholarship places excessive emphasis on the role and prestige of mathematics as a scientific tool. In this paper we argue this is inadequate, not least because it fails to account for the whole classical era when mathematical economists failed to have any impact. Explaining this failure is one of the main aims of this paper. Most accounts focus mostly on the intellectual factors involved failing to do justice to what amounts to a multifaceted and complicated phenomenon involving social, economic, political, intellectual, normative and institutional factors. Partly redressing the balance by bringing to the fore the various factors involved is the other prime aim of this paper.

  • Contrast explanation in economics: its context, meaning, and potential
    • Authors: Morgan J; Patomäki H.
      Pages: 1391 - 1418
      Abstract: AbstractIn this article we place Tony Lawson’s account of contrast explanation in context. Lawson’s development of it is given meaning both by the roots of the approach in his work on social ontology and the state of economics that provides the grounds for the critique contained in that social ontology. This is important because such an approach to explanation is not new. Most notably, van Fraassen and Garfinkel have developed it in particular ways and for particular purposes within the philosophy of science and social theory. Setting out the different ways in which the contrastive approach has been developed is useful for identifying what is different about Lawson’s approach, its potential and limits. Lawson’s proposal is more modest and focusses on causal investigation in a manner that flows from his approach to social ontology. Contrast explanation provides a substitute for controlled experiments and facilitates identifying social mechanisms. It also enables exploration of the manifold presuppositions of our explanatory questions. We argue that this is a useful and important contribution to overcoming some of the many problems economics faces.

  • Trust and the social positioning process
    • Authors: Pratten S.
      Pages: 1419 - 1436
      Abstract: AbstractWhen setting out, defending and exploring the implications of his specific position in social ontology, Tony Lawson highlights the importance of trust. Despite the significance he attaches to trust, Lawson does not provide an extended elaboration of the nature of trust but rather considers it in various contexts where his primary focus lies elsewhere. The purpose of the current paper is to examine how trust features in Lawson’s discussions. I identify three phases of argumentation where trust has some significant prominence in his work. Most recently Lawson when outlining his general socio-philosophical ontology describes trust as the essential glue binding society together. In earlier contributions he approaches trust from a developmental perspective and at times sees trust as a condition required for generalised human flourishing. I argue that a coherent and compelling account of the nature and significance of trust emerges from these discussions and that it is one that deserves further elaboration and critical attention. Resources in the form of certain complementary perspectives are identified that may help to flesh out aspects of Lawson’s account of trust.

  • Materialising social ontology
    • Authors: Elder-Vass D.
      Pages: 1437 - 1451
      Abstract: AbstractSocial theorists increasingly recognise that material things often play vital roles in the causation of social events. However, there is substantial disagreement on how to theorise these roles. Several members of the Cambridge Social Ontology Group have made important contributions in the form of their work on the ontology of technological objects. This paper builds on their work to develop an ontology of socio-technical structures: social entities composed of both humans and technological objects, with causal powers that depend on how these parts relate to, and interact with, each other. The implication is that material things are not just significant in their own right, or as parts of technical complexes, but that they can play a central role in social structures themselves. Indeed, many of the most important and consequential social structures in contemporary societies, and in particular in contemporary economies, are socio-technical structures.

  • Money: Ontology and Deception
    • Authors: Searle J.
      Pages: 1453 - 1470
      Abstract: AbstractMoney is a status function. This article works out the implications and consequences of that fact. There are ten functions and features of money and a number of common mistakes and deceptions in the institution of money. The most important of deceptions is the illusion that money, in order to function, must be ‘backed by’ something.

  • The ontology of money
    • Authors: Peacock M.
      Pages: 1471 - 1487
      Abstract: AbstractTony Lawson’s recent foray into social ontology in this Journal takes, as its subject, money. This essay examines Lawson’s ontological analysis of money with a view to clarifying the compatibility between his ontological position and credit theories of money, especially those which stand in the chartalist tradition. It also examines Lawson’s claims about commodity theories of money in light of credit theorists’ pronunciations on commodity theories.

  • Social ontology and the modern corporation
    • Authors: Veldman J; Willmott H.
      Pages: 1489 - 1504
      Abstract: AbstractIn an assessment of Lawson’s social ontological analysis of the modern corporation, we consider what is marginalized: the significance of the status and the effects of the separate legal entity (SLE). The SLE is conceived as a specific type of construct that is ascribed particular properties through its stabilization within and between different (legal and economic) discourses. By showing how the SLE, as a reified construct, is rendered meaningful, real and/or consequential, we illustrate how the ‘social ontology’ of the modern corporation is radically contingent and inescapably contested. Given that the social ontology of the corporation defies definitive specification, we regard the prospect of the completeness of its disclosure (e.g. by foregrounding a specific referent) as problematic. Indeed, any account of social ontology that foregrounds a specific referent is seen to obscure a political process in which the stabilization of the SLE rests on the contingent foregrounding of particular priorities. This leads us to reflect on the power-inflected social organization of knowledge generation. Key to the explication of social ontology, and with specific reference to the corporation, is not, as Lawson contends, the concept of ‘community’ but the inescapability of contestation within relations of power that translate ontological openness into specific but precarious forms of ontic closure.

  • Tony Lawson’s Theory of the Corporation: Towards a Social Ontology
           of Law
    • Authors: Deakin S.
      Pages: 1505 - 1523
      Abstract: AbstractIn his account of the corporation as a ‘community’, Tony Lawson advances a materialist theory of social reality to argue for the existence of emergent social structures based on collective practices and behaviours, distinguishing his position from John Searle’s theory of social reality as consisting of declarative speech acts. Lawson’s and Searle’s accounts are examined for what they imply about the relationship between social structures and legal concepts. It is argued that legal concepts are themselves a feature of social reality and that a consequence of the law’s recognition of the ‘reality’ of the corporation is to open up the activities of business firm to a distinct form of normative ordering.

  • Tony Lawson from a sociological point of view
    • Authors: Porpora D.
      Pages: 1525 - 1537
      Abstract: AbstractThis article is a commentary on Tony Lawson’s seminal contribution to critical realism from a sociological point of view. It discusses particularly Lawson’s approach to research methodology and social ontology and, while finding much of importance in both, also takes certain issue with each.
