The economic discipline has always been an object of
investigation. But unlike in former times, when
methodological and epistemological developments had been the
object of historians of economic thought, recently the focus
of inquiry shifted towards the constitution, organisation
and performativity of the economic discipline. It is the
intention of the book to contribute to a better
understanding of the working and failures of the `market for
economic ideas‘.

Arne Heise is professor of economics at the
Department of Socioeconomics of the University of Hamburg
and Director of its Center for Economic and Sociological
Studies (CESS).
