But, beside the concept of political economy as a science analogous to physics and chemistry the anatomical-physiological point of view soon made itself felt more clearly than had previously been suggested by individual workers in our science. The conception of the national economy as an organism and of its laws as analogous to those of anatomy and physiology confronted the physical conception; the biological point of view in research confronted the atomistic. Scientific investigation did not stop at this complication of the methodological problem.

The desire to find enlightenment in the writings of prominent logicians on the goals of research in the field of our science has often been manifest recently among German economists. There can be no doubt that this must be regarded merely as a symptom of the extremely unsatisfactory state of this part of the theoretical structure of our science. However, I do, indeed, believe that general theoretical investigations will be highly beneficial to us as soon as we have reached assured results on the nature of the truths of political economy.
