Harold Kincaid is professor of economics at the University of Cape Town and director of the Research Unit for Behavioural Economics and Neuroeconomics (RUBEN).
He is co-editor of The Oxford handbook of philosophy of economics (2009) and The Oxford handbook of philosophy of social science (2012).

Broadly, he has focused on the methodologies of social science and has published on a whole host of related topics, including causal modelling, the philosophy of social science, the role of explanation as a concept in social sciences, and the medical models of addiction.

Right now, he says, his interest is in how social scientists infer causes and correlations.
