Quotation Spash, Clive L. 2021. A reply to Levrel and Martinet. Ecological Economics. 179 (Jan), 1-2.




Levrel and Martinet (2020; hereafter LM) confuse two separate issues: classification relating to actual groups (their beliefs, motives and ideology) and the implications of a groups' (often paradigmatic) commitments including the implications for ontology, epistemology and methodology. The first concerns the existence of specific identifiable groups, which LM seem to accept even in terms of the validity of the classifications NRE/NEP/SEE. The second concerns how those groups' ideas fit with ideas relating to ecological, as opposed to any other, economics, and including incommensurability and incompatibility between theories, ideas and paradigms.
