does Angriff The German Attack On Stalingrad In Photos insist that a concept status as metaphysical ought not diminisht n the leastin which case I feel like asking Does t matter f a concept s either metaphysical or scientific The answer appears to be a resounding Noso why bother with the distinction Never mindAre there any scientific concepts n economics not really appears to be the answer Or perhaps accurately Yes but they re built atop a metaphysical foundation or within a metaphysical frameworkI take exception with Robinson s criteria for falsifiability since t seems naive and poorly
