Formatted abstract
The economic theory of entrepreneurship purports to be a complete explanation of practical or business action. It fails as a theory because it starts from the presupposition that chance or indetermination does not exist. Not being cognizant of this presupposition, which is common to all the social sciences, it is unable to articulate a cogent explanation of entrepreneurship. The thesis attempts to show the common textual source of the economic theories of entrepreneurship by deriving the presuppositions they share with modern social science in general. Having derived these presupposition it then utilizes Keyne’s descriptive analysis and Aristotle’s understanding of theory as it relates to practice, to provide a reasoned explanation of entrepreneurship.
