Where did economics come from and how did it assume its current form? This is the fundamental question that this course seeks to investigate by integrating philosophy, politics, and economics through historical analysis. The course presents the development of economics from a branch of moral philosophy, into political economy, and finally into a quasi-scientific and quantitative discipline today. At every stage, the course places developments in the field into political and social context and presents alternative sets of ideas and paths not taken that were once prominent but have since been forgotten. This course is available to students in the PPE Program.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Demonstrate an understanding of classic texts in economics
- Apply theoretical results to practical economic examples
- Demonstrate an understanding of formal economic models
- Assessment may consist of a final exam, mid-semester exam(s), quizzes, assignments or some combination thereof. See the Class Summary for details. (100) [LO 1,2,3]
