History of economic thought in the post-Keynesian tradition

Dow S (2002) History of economic thought in the post-Keynesian tradition, History of Political Economy, 34 (Supplement 1), pp. 319-336.

First paragraph: Casual inspection ofthe post-Keynesian literature, like other heterodox literatures, reveals an extent ofref erence to historical texts and analysis ofthe se texts that is unusual in modern economics, although not in earlier economic literature. The purpose ofthis essay is to provide an account ofthe part that history ofthought plays in post-Keynesian economics, and how history ofthought is understood within the school. I will argue that this understanding does not allow for history of thought to be fitted into dualistic categories, or indeed to be separated off from economics itself. While some have raised issue with post-Keynesian history ofthought by means ofthis attempt at posing distinctions, we will explore here how the post-Keynesian approach to history ofthought takes issue with the distinctions themselves.
