HIST 9.04 The Intellectual History of Capitalism

Since its inception capitalism has not only been an economic endeavor but also an intellectual challenge. Critics and boosters of capitalism have debated questions such as these: Is capitalism natural? Is capitalism equitable, or should it be? Does capitalism require a specific type of society and politics? This reading-intensive course introduces students to key texts about capitalism since the mid-19th century. Authors covered include Marx, Mill, Veblen, Keynes, Hayek, Polyani, Friedman, Foucault, and Piketty.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
