Abstract

After briefly reconstructing the debate in Italy during the period of the marginalist revolution on the correct methodology for the history of economic thought, the article examines De Viti de Marco's position. A historical essay of his (1891) on Antonio Serra (1613), becomes the first object of our critical enquiry. As with other studies of De Viti de Marco, from it emerges the adoption of an analytical and retrospective approach to the history of economic thought. In addition, a position critical of the divisions among economic schools is evident. Finally, a historiographical question on De Viti de Marco's work on Serra remains open.
