This course is cross-listed with ECON 318 001. Students can register in either section. We will trace the development of economic thought from Aristotle to Malthus, also reading brief excerpts from the work of Aquinas, Mun, Locke, and Quesnay. We will read, in more depth, the writings of David Hume and Adam Smith, and acquire a broader context from Albert O. Hirschmans account of the philosophical justification for capitalism.
