This work intends to present the main heterodox questions brought up by James Steuart´s thought. Steuart´s works on political economy have the sign of duality. This sign condemned this work to ostracism during this life time and labeled him as mercanlist in the history of economic thought. This article uses the duality in his work to connect it with the recent research recovering his initial ideas. This study is a part of a movement that seeks to spread the knowledge of Steuart´s visions about the economic process and political economy as a science to put forward the interpretation that political economy in its origin is submerged in important divergences about scientific perspectives.
