A formative decade: methodological controversy in the 1930s

Journal of Economic Methodology 16 (3):297-314 (2009)
An edited version of a semi-autobiographical piece that Terence Hutchison wrote in 2001?2003, shortly before his death, in which he reflected on the methodological developments in which he had been involved, centred on the London School of Economics, in the 1930s. It explains very clearly the context out of which his own work arose. Particular attention is paid to the work of Lionel Robbins, Frank Knight and the philosopher Felix Kaufmann.
