Topics and readings

These topics won’t map cleanly into lectures, but it summarizes what we’ll aim to cover for this part of the course.

For readings not linked to below, I’ll do my best to make the readings available at the start of the course.

Readings marked with an asterisk are considered particularly important material in view of the exam (TBC).

  1. Economists making things happen
  2. The history of a scientific subject These readings are not selected only for their contents, but for the different approaches to writing intellectual history they represent.
  3. The social science of science
  4. The politics of science
  5. The ethics of research and policy advice
  6. Non-orthodox traditions
