(p.1) Introduction
Handbook of Experimental Economic Methodology

Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter provides an overview of the main themes running through this discussion of experimental economics. The time is right for such a discussion because experimental economics is no longer an emerging discipline but one that has matured to the point where it has become integrated into the thinking and curriculum of graduate training. However, along with growth and maturity comes a set of issues that any growing discipline has to confront. These include the proper relationship between theory and experiments; the usefulness of experimental results outside the lab; and the proper place of ideas from other disciplines like psychology and neuroscience in experimental economics.

Keywords:   experimental economics, economic theory, experiments, graduate training, psychology, neuroscience
