Excerpt from A History of Economic Doctrines From the Time of the Physiocrats to the Present Day
Such prominence given to the history of theory must seem excessive, especially when it is remembered that in economic history, as distinct from the history of economics, there is not a single chair in the whole of France. Those who believe that the French people are somewhat prone to ideology will not fail to see in this fact a somewhat unfortunate manifestation of that tendency. Elsewhere the positions are reversed, the premier place being given to the study of facts rather than ideas. Extreme partisans of the historical method, especially the advocates of historical materialism, regard doctrines and systems as nothing better than a pale reﬂection of facts. It is a part of their belief that facts are the only things that matter, and that the history of the evolution of property or the rise Of the wage system may prove quite as instructive as the history of the controversies concerning the nature of the right of property or the wages-fund theory.
