I teach the Modern to Contemporary Philosophy class at my university. I have decided to add a new lesson next time: After we cover Marx, we’re going to survey some other economist-philosophers from Marx’ time and afterwards.
Which economists should I cover? At present, my plan for this lesson covers Bastiat, Von Mises, Keynes, Hayek, and Friedman. If you’re going to cover, say, six to eight economists of the 1800s and 1900s in a philosophy class, does the best list consist of these guys + Marx?
I have no intention of dropping Marx; he’s just too influential to ignore. But I would love to hear your list of five to seven others. (Many of you know more economists than I do, and others who may be as uninformed as I am may be uninformed in a different direction!)Published in
