The Role Of Core Texts In History Of Economic Thought

Authors

  • Fritz Efaw

Abstract

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.
