The History of Economic Thought in the Context of Intellectual History

This 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. Syllabus
