The History of Economic Thought in the Context of Intellectual
is a course which intends to ask how it is that we have arrived
at this curious configuration of doctrines called "economics";
and more importantly, how differing modes of historical discourse
tend to ratify us in our prejudices about our own involvement
in this curious project. Such an inquiry requires a fair amount
of reading, simply in order to have any serious ideas at all,
much less to possess a critical faculty to accompany them.
