Abstract

Instantly, the popular way in which scholars categorize economic methodology doesn't master the essence of methodology of mainstream economics. According to the idealistic or materialistic criterion, to explain psychology with psychology itself is an inherent defect of the "hypothesis of economic Man". Since middle period of the 20`" century, "the idealism dogma" that is dominant in western economics methodology for a long time has met challenges from sociology, psychology and economics. Even if those challenges lacks support by empirical analysis, the challenges from "behavioral economics" and "experimental economics" based on empirical analysis can' t be considered as the sheer nonsense any longer. So we see, during the process of relaxing assumption and making concessions constantly, the idealistic foundation of western mainstream economic methodology is being corroded gradually. To admit this kind of "corrosion' can not only help us to understand the crisis of western mainstream economics, but also help us to insight the development trend of western mainstream economic methodology.
