Humanism Challenges Materialism in Economics and Economic History

Steven E. Landsburg

University of Chicago Press

In the 1970s, McCloskey trained a generation of graduate students in the way of thinking that has come to be known as "Chicago price theory". McCloskey's mastery of the subject, extraordinary teaching skills and legendary generosity combined to create an intellectual legacy that has profoundly affected the way economics is taught and understood at institutions all over the world. This essay is a tribute to that legacy and its creator.
