Buchanan Deirdre McCloskey Matt Ridley I am grateful to the Review of Austrian Economics and to Peter Boettke for welcoming this conversation about pluralism and Austrian economics. In my paper, “Why Should Austrian Economists be Pluralists?”, I highlighted an incongruity between Boettke's classical liberal vision of a free society and his vision of science as a free market (Boettke 2007). I had hoped to convince him that the density and dynamism of the scientific catallaxy depends upon the scholarly ethics of individual participants. I am gratified that Boettke seems to have been persuaded that academic competition is more likely to yield intellectual progress if scholars are able to “see things through different perspectives and understand, rather than just dismiss, the frameworks of intellectual opponents” (Boettke this issue, 2). By way of response to the papers by Boettke, Roger Koppl, http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The Review of Austrian Economics Springer Journals
