Abstract
The article is dedicated to the analysis of critical realism as one of the most noticeable trends in modern methodology of economy. The authors of the article note that Tony Lawson quite reasonably criticized an economic mainstream against enthusiasm for mathematical models which often have problematic links with reality. T. Lawson's merit is that the concept of ontology was included firmly into an arsenal of the economic theory of the 21st century. Meanwhile, authors of the article are of the opinion that the ontologic pluralism supported by T. Lawson, did not allow him to penetrate the economic reality itself, and limited his researches only to ontology of economic science.
