Abstract:

Within the philosophical-methodological context of analysis, this paper deals with central issues regarding economics as a science, where the focus of attention is on the viewpoint of complexity. In this regard, several steps are taken in the contents: first, the characteristic features of science and the case of economics (constitutive elements, thematic diversification and the place of this discipline within the system of knowledge); second, economics as an applied design science that faces the problem of complexity (from an ontological and epistemological perspectives, which are articulated in the structural side and the dynamic dimension); third, the scientific status of economics according to the epistemological and methodological criteria that have been dominant so far, and which have a direct connection to prediction; and, finally -as a coda- the role of mathematical models regarding economics, within the framework of a comparison between the different kinds of science. These steps look for relevant aspect of each issue analyzed, taking into account that the main aim is a contextualization of economics as a science rather than an exhaustive consideration of each topic.
