Summary:
Keith Tribe elaborates an explicitly philological approach to the history of economic thought. Beginning with an account of the transformation in the concept of 'economy' from antiquity to modernity, he presents readings of the writings of Adam Smith, Karl Marx, and Léon Walras which seek to demonstrate what can be achieved by an attention to the construction of text, concept, and number.
