Abstract: The article is a contribution to a special issue on the shifting boundaries of economics at an era of fragmentation. By speculating on the origins of such fragmentation, the paper introduces readers to concepts like economics imperialism, paradigms in economics, pluralism and interdisciplinarity, in a historical perspective. It also aims to demonstrating that, by accepting the challenge and responsibility of exploring the current era of fragmentation, the history of economic thought can provide the theoretical ‘glue’ required for the analysis of economics in a post-foundational phase.
