dr. M.E.G.M. Rol
Menno Rol studied philosophy of science and economics. He graduated in 2001 with a masters thesis on the relative independence of the development of economic theory and economic policy. Title of the thesis: 'The ubiquitous hand of economics'. In 2007 he defended his PhD thesis 'Conceptual progress in economics' which treats problems with regard to the role of ceteris paribus clauses in the idealizational practices of social scientists, the essentialist intuitions of economists and the importance of concept formation in social science. It also discusses the reasoning strategy of early Austrian capital theorist Eugen von Böhm-Bawerk.
Currently his research interest develops towards both the conceptual and the methodological intricacies of constructing the evidence base for evidence based policy.
Menno Rol teaches sociology, philosophy of social science and policy evaluation and he presided the Dutch board for the renewed secondary school economics exams.
