What People are Saying About This

Robert Heilbroner

This is one of those marvelously interesting and useful books about which one asks: 'why wasn't it done long ago?' The answer is that Deborah Redman wasn't there to do it.

Mark Blaug

This is a work of remarkale scholarship and the first book-length study of the methodology of English Classical Political Economy. Never has the old hoary distinction between the inductive and deductive approaches of say, Adam Smith and David Ricardo been more neatly disposed of than in this work and that is only a sample of the many issues illuminated by the author.

D. Wade Hands

Deborah A Redman's new book provides us with the definitive statement of classical economic methodology. The presentation is scholarly as well as lively, and a few myths get explored along the way. The book is an important contribution to the historical literature and is also relevant to contemporary debates in economic methodology.
