In the midst of a world in severe economic, financial, and unemployment crisis, this article seeks to examine what economic intellectual history is and what it has been, and what it might be in the process of becoming. Economic intellectual history as a sub-field of intellectual history has been flourishing at least since the 1970s, but it has not been given as much attention as, e.g., the history of political thought. This is partly because much history of economic thought has been written by economists, trained in the techniques of economics. Taking notice of two recent developments, one inside intellectual history, and one outside of it, this article seeks to show how economic intellectual history is, and increasingly can be, something different than “the history of economic thought,” economist-style. The first development is the broadening of intellectual history. This relates to its now many available methodologies, its expansions in relation to time, space, actors and sources it can study. This broadening has important consequences for economic intellectual history. The article thus maps how different genres of intellectual history, such as conceptual history, genealogical studies, etc., already deal specifically with the histories of economic concepts, discourse, and ideas. The second development refers to the many recent contributions of the study of economic discourse, ideas, reasoning, etc., which have been developed in other disciplines than intellectual history, such as economic sociology, anthropology, etc., that economic intellectual history can draw upon. The article uses and develops categorizations of economic intellectual history which will hopefully be useful for orientation in a broad field, distinguishing between historical and rational reconstructions of economic thinking, mapping out various approaches to economic intellectual history, such as histories of legitimization, and outlining some possible future perspectives.
