Pathways of History into Economics

History has been an exceptional resource for the study of economics. In which ways, and within which limits, has history - that is, economic facts of the past and their analysis - been played a role in the works of the great economists? In order to answer this question, the editor has invited nine Italian scholars to examine the writings of renowned economists of the past (including Quesnay, Smith, Ricardo, Marx, Marshall, Pantaleoni, Schumpeter, Keynes, and Sraffa) in order to establish the presence of a "historical" dimension in their theories. The same question was also submitted to three contemporary economists - Friedman, Pasinetti, and Samuelson - who answer by reviewing their own personal experience. A biography and a bibliography complete each essay.
