Neoclassical is the label given to the mainstream discipline of economics following the profession's divorce from political science in the late nineteenth century. Since then, economic scholarship has grown increasingly abstract, relying ever more on deductive logic and parsimonious models to pare messy reality down to its bare essentials. The prevailing style, as in the physical sciences, is reductionist. The aim is to uncover universal truths - "to predict something large from something small," as a prominent economist once put it (Johnson 1971: 9).
