Abstract

This essay gives an overview of a set of selected articles published between 2016 and 2017 in the major journals that cover the history of economic thought. In surveying the literature, we focus on three major aspects – the scope, the sources, and the methods – with reference to which we discuss the novelties that we find in the recent literature on the history of economic thought.

Keywords: Historiography; recent literature on the history of economic thought; scope, methods, and sources in the history of economic thought; new trends in the history of economic thought
