I offer a chronologically-based discussion of my contributions to the entrepreneurship field. These mainly have to do with revitalizing the Knightian approach to entrepreneurshop (i.e., the judgment view), bringing entrepreneurship theory and the theory of the firm together, and linking institutions (particularly those that relate to economic freedom) to entrepreneurship. My contributions have drawn on a number of research streams, mainly Austrian economics, capabilities ideas, and transaction cost economics.
Keywords: Entrepreneurship, judgment, the theory of the firm, institutional economics
