Sosyolojik Bir Kategori Olarak Heterodoks İktisat
Heterodox Economics as a Sociological Category

Hüsnü Bilir [1]


Günümüzde heterodoks iktisat terimi Veblen, Marx, Robinson, Sraffa –hatta kimi zaman Keynes ve Hayek- gibi düşünürleri ve post-Keynesyen iktisat, Marksist iktisat, Sraffacı (neo-Ricardocu) iktisat, yapısalcı iktisat, kurumcu iktisat, sosyal iktisat ve evrimci iktisat gibi düşünce okullarını ifade etmek üzere kullanılmaktadır. Bu denli farklı düşünür veya düşünce okulunun bir arada sınıflandırmasının sebebi ise, belli müşterek kavram ve fikirlere sahip olduklarının ya da iktisat disiplininin ortodoksisine veya anaakımına karşı çıktıklarının kabul edilmesidir. Heterodoksiyi bu şekilde belli kavram ve fikirler üzerinden veya ortodoksinin veya anaakımın reddedilmesi üzerinden ele alan bu tanımlar heterodoksinin yalnızca entelektüel veçhesine vurgu yapmakta ve iktisat disiplininin değişen yapısını yansıtmamaktadır. Bu çalışmanın amacı ise, heterodoks iktisadın saygınlık ve nüfuz ekseninde ele alınması gereken sosyolojik bir kategori olduğunu vurgulamak ve sözü edilen düşünür ya da düşünce okullarının neden heterodoks olarak nitelendirildiklerini tespit etmektir.

The term of heterodox economics has been used to state such thinkers as Veblen, Marx, Robinson, Sraffa –even sometimes Keynes and Hayek- and such schools of thought as post-Keynesian economics, Marxist economics, Sraffian (neo-Ricardian) economics, structalist economics, institutional economics, social economics and evolutionary economics. Such diverse thinkers and schools of thought are classified together because it’s accepted that they either have some common concepts and ideas, or reject the orthodoxy or mainstream of economics. But these definitions discuss heterodoxy in terms of particular concepts and ideas or rejection of orthodoxy or mainstream emphasise merely the intellectual aspect of heterodoxy and doesn’t represent the changing structure of economics. The aim of this paper is to emphasise that the heterodox economics is a sociological cathegory which has to be discussed in the context of respect and influence, and determine why these thinkers of schools of thought aforementioned are designated as heterodox.
