Title: The Future of Mathematics in Economics: a Philosophically Grounded Proposal
Author: Crespo, Ricardo; Tohmé, Fernando
Abstract: The use of mathematics in economics has been widely discussed. The philosophical discussion on what mathematics is remains unsettled on why it can be applied to the study of the real world. We propose to get back to some philosophical conceptions that lead to a language-like role for the mathematical analysis of economic phenomena and present some problems of interest that can be better examined in this light. Category theory provides the appropriate tools for these analytical approach.
