An Outline of the History of Economic Thought
This text provides a comprehensive and analytical overview of the development of economic theory from its beginnings, at the end of the Middle Ages, up to contemporary contributions. Traditional theories are presented as living matter, and modern theories are presented as part of a historical process and not as established truths. In this way, the book avoids the dangerous dichotomy between the 'pure' historians of thought who dedicate themselves exclusively to studying 'facts', and the 'pure' theorists who are only interested in the evolution of the logical structure of theories.
