The question of 'what type of science is economics' has been discussed as early as the first mention of economics (first political economy and then economics) as a concept. This topic is discussed especially in the methodology and philosophy of economics studies, with varying answers depending on the approach.

The prevailing view in social sciences is that economics is a positive science and should follow the methods used in natural sciences. This article does not particularly deal with such discussions. Our goal here is, without touching this issue much, to mention the art and social science aspects of economics, as well as to address agent-based computational economics (ACE)'s claim of performing realistic economics.

“İktisat nasıl bir bilimdir?” sorusu iktisat bilimi (önce political economy ve ardından economics) kavramı kullanılmasından bu yana tartışıl-maktadır. Özellikle iktisat metodolojisi ve felsefesi çalışmalarında öne çıkan konu, bu soruya verilen yanıtlarla ilgilidir.

İktisat bilimindeki hâkim görüş, iktisadın pozitif bir bilim olduğu ve doğal bilimlerinin kullandığı yöntemleri izlemesi gerektiğine ilişkindir.  Makalede bu yöndeki tartışmalardan çok söz edilmeyecektir. Bu çalışmadaki amacımız, pozitif bilim tartışmalarına fazla değinmeden, iktisadın sanat ve sosyal bilim yönünü öne çıkartmak, Ajan Bazlı Kompütasyonel İktisadın (ACE) gerçekçi iktisat yapma konusunda iddialarını ele almaktır.
