Summary A History of Economic Thought: From Aristotle to Arrow is a text for undergraduate history of economic thought courses. It covers the major writers and schools of thought and, in so doing, reveals not only ideas, but relevant stories of the lives of the great economic thinkers. Contemporary economics, although written in a mathematical language not used by most economists in the long history of the subject, is a continuation of many of the concerns of the past, and the text explores the ways in which the economics of our age -- indeed, any age -- develops out of both the writings of the past and the concerns of the present.
There are far more ideas in the history of economic thought than can be covered in one semester, especially when part of the time is devoted to reading original material. However, A History of Economic Thought: From Aristotle to Arrow solves this problem by emphasizing largely -- though not exclusively -- mainstream economics and economists. And by concentrating on the change in mainstream economics from epoch to epoch the student will discover that economics, like any science or art, is a never finished enterprise.
Subject Economics -- History.
