The Role Of Core Texts In History Of Economic Thought
This paper compares the integration of core texts found in two widely used textbooks on the history of economic thought by examining the treatment of two well-known historical texts. The difference in approach between the two authors has pedagogical implications for the role of a history of thought course in the curriculum; in addition it echoes a much older and deeper debate over the use of core texts from the canon.
