Abstract: In our paper we look back and review some of the old books on the history of economic thought. This exercise allows us not only to scan and line up a possible range of different views on progress, but also to perceive why progress itself sometimes becomes an explicit issue within those histories. At the same time, this inquiry shed some light over the path that led to Schumpeter and Blaug views on the history of economics.
