Logical Empiricism as Critical Theory?
The Debate Continues

Abstract: Is logical empiricism incompatible with a critical social
The longstanding assumption that it is incompatible has been prominent 
in recent debates about welfare economics. Sen’s development of a 
critical and descriptively rich welfare economics is taken by writers
such as 
Putnam, Walsh and Sen to involve the excising of the in?uence of logical 
empiricism on neo-classical economics. However, this view stands
in contrast to the descriptively rich contributions to political economy
of members of
the left Vienna Circle, such as Otto Neurath. This paper considers the
of the meta-theoretical commitments of Neurath and others in the logical
tradition with this ?rst-order critical political economy.
