Economic Philosophy

This course examines the history, evolution, and current state of the philosophy of science underlying economics. The central aim of the course is to provide students with a deep understanding of how economic analysis works, and, thereby, to help students critically interpret the claims of current economic research and rhetoric. The course is divided thematically into four parts, studying: (1) the pre-history of modern economics, (2) the foundation and evolution of modern economics, (3) critical responses to modern economic philosophy, and (4) current work in economics.
