課程概述 Course Description

經濟思想史旨在探討西洋經濟思想形成之背景、演化之過程及其影響。內容包括以古典及新古典學派為主的主流經濟學,以及以馬克思理論、歷史學派以及制度學派等為核心的非主流經濟學。本科目試圖提供一個寬廣的視野來檢視經濟理論的發展,因此亦涉及到不同時期的政經發展、哲學思潮以及經濟學方法論。這門課程是從經濟學的興起與演變過程的認識來理解經濟學的性質與發展。經濟學的理論包含了經濟學家對所觀察現象的合理化以及對未來的理想化成分。因此,我們會特別重視經濟思想與其產生之歷史背景的互動。此外,這門課要求學生嘗試閱讀經典作品,也強調上課時的討論。
History of economic thought explores the formation, evolution, and influence of western economic thought. It consists of the analysis of orthodox economics which mainly includes classical and neoclassical schools, and non-orthodox economics which consists of Marxian theory, Germany historical school, institutionalism, and so on. The subject tries to evaluate various economic thoughts from a broad perspective, so that it involves political-economic nexus, philosophical thought, and economic methodology in different periods.
