Chapter Chapter 1 in New Perspectives on Political Economy and Its History, 2020, pp 1-18 from Palgrave Macmillan

Abstract: Abstract The eighteen essays collected in this book present new perspectives on the history of economic thought (HET), seen as a living corpus of debates whose analysis can help to overcome the limitations of today’s mainstream. Drawing on the relationship between HET and economic history is essential in this regard, as argued by Annalisa Rosselli to whom the book is dedicated. Building on that relationship, this book defends an approach to the HET, which is both analytical and historical. This way of doing HET differs from the approach which evaluates past authors through the lens of present-day economics, as well as from other approaches which tend to separate the study of economic theories from economic history. Focusing on special theories and their historical and institutional dimension, the analytical-historical approach to the HET offers the possibility to reorient the study of political economy along new promising routes.
