Adolfo García de la Sienra Guajardo, “The Logical Structure of Generalized Darwinism” (E, vol. 6/1, pp. 61-72).

Abstract: The aim in the present paper is to advance toward a systematic set-theoretic reconstruction of the so-called “general darwinism”, which is a generalization of evolutionary theory that would allow the application of its fundamental concepts to non-biotic, in particular economic phenomena. More specifically, this communication is looking for a general set theoretic reconstruction of the conceptual framework within which the Price equation can be formulated in a precise fashion. The paper ends pointing out the difficulties faced by this undertaking.

Keywords: Evolutionary economics, general darwinism, structuralist view of theories, Price equation
