Description
Economic Theory Literature

Excerpt
Excerpt: Preface to The First Edition. The nature of the topics discussed in the following pages is sufficiently indicated in the introductory chapter, and a lengthy preface is therefore unnecessary. The abstract discussion of methods may appear to some to have mainly an academic interest, since it does not directly extend our knowledge of economic phenomena. Whilst, however, we ought to be upon our guard against allowing any such discussion to obscure the greater importance of actual economic investigations, the subject is one to which all students of economics must necessarily give some attention in the course of their reading, and its indirect bearing on the solution of practical economic questions is very far indeed from being without importance. Unfortunately almost every problem connected with the scope and method of political economy has given rise to conflict of opinion; and the resulting controversies have sometimes been very bitter. Those readers, therefore, who already have any acquaintance with the literature of economic method, will be prepared to find that several of the chapters are more or less controversial in character. At the same time, I have endeavoured to avoid the tone of a partisan, and have sought, in the treatment of disputed questions, to represent both sides without prejudice. Whilst making no attempt to bring about a complete reconciliation between opposing views, I have been able to shew that the nature of the opposition between them has sometimes been misunderstood, and its extent consequently exaggerated.
