Expand/collapse block Information for lesson "History of Economic Theory NPTEL"
Description: This syllabus consists of a study of the History of Economic Theory from a perspective of the History of Economy, Society and Ideas. The perspective is that the world of ideas is grounded in the socio-economic mileu, and that economic ideas are a part of such world of ideas.
First outline the relationship between the two central issues of scarcity and uncertainty, with different forms of socio economic organization, such as hunting-gathering, pastoral and agrarian socio economic organization. We then outline the role of uncertainty in the emergence of faith based universals in the social construction of knowledge. This is contrasted with the role of experience in the social construction of knowledge. The tension between these two approaches is highlighted.
