Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Aims and Content
The aim of this course is to introduce students to the history of economic thought. Although historically oriented, this course is mainly analytical and discusses the development of economic ideas by analyzing problem situations, problems and proposed solutions as well as resulting controversies. However, this course also investigates methodological and epistemological positions since the attempt to find satisfactory solutions for open problems in economic theory frequently resulted in methodological debates such as discussions regarding the satisfactory structure of social science explanations. Diligent students will learn to make sense of and evaluate the historical background as well as the performance of theories, the main criticisms and later developments of those controversies which implicitly still cover much ground in temporary discussions.
Methods
Teaching consists of one unbroken 90-minute seminar; discussion of different text passages which have to be prepared on the basis of questions distributed in advance for every meeting; presentation and discussion of answers for every meeting.
