IESTC Discourse Series

Our Discourse

The study of economics as discourse requires a perspective that focuses on the relationships among knowledge (or truth), discourse (or language), and meaning. Central to this task is the recognition that the conduct of economic analysis uses words and that words embody meanings that are applied to the object of study, but do not necessarily derive from that object, although they define that object for us.

Knowledge Economists are engaged in strivesto understand and explain the economy. In the pursuit of the knowledge of Islamic economics,our attempt is to make coherent the respects in which belief is to be accepted as knowledge, or the senses in which this knowledge has the quality of "truth ". The field of methodology in Islamic economics parallels the fields of Tawhidi epistemology and philosophy of science in the attempt to make sense of and to prescribe the terms on which efforts at knowledge may be accepted as "True", or the terms on which statements can be accepted as "Knowledge".

The conduct of such methodological inquiry typically treats Islamic economics as a science. This discourse engages in the pursuit of truth as a Tawhidiepistemological category - though there have almost always been economists who were sceptical of the status of Islamic economics as a science, and the pursuit of knowledge is only one of three reputed philosophical basis of Islamic economics, namely ontological, logical or psychological dimensions.
