The study assesses some cases of the more or less ubiquitous methodological approach in economics whereby priority is given to quantitative tools of analysis. Economists often borrow techniques for reflecting facts from the natural sciences, but the limits of these need scrutinizing more closely. They are presented here in examples from statistics and cliometrics. The author stresses the importance of distinguishing 'quantitative' from 'pseudo-quantitative' products of economic research when such products of knowledge creation are assessed by referees for professional journals or by others.
