Research Unit for the History of Political and Economic Ideas

Profile

The focus of the research unit is on the development and manifestation of political and economic thought both historically and at present. With a starting point in intellectual history the social, historical, ideological, scientific etc. contexts and developments. One of the primary concerns of the research unit is to incorporate and discuss various analytical tools and approaches to the study of political and economic ideas in motion. Of particular interest is the exploration of analytical resources developed outside classical intellectual history, for instance in literary theory, social history, sociology etc. and the discussion and experimentation of applying these resources in an intellectual history analysis.
