In this episode, we briefly talk about methods in the History of Economic Thought, before discussing with Thomas Stapleford his paper Historical Epistemology and the History of Economics: Views Through the Lens of Practice. In this paper, Stapleford argues for approaching the history of economic thought as a history of practices. This paper was also on of the topic of a one-day workshop for young scholars organised this May by Maria and Reinhard before the annual conference of the European Society for the History of Economic Thought.
