      I. History of Experimental Economics

      II. Transformations of Economics through the Lens of Collective Biography

      Traditionally, the history of economic thought has been presented as a succession of great minds and their ideas. This approach ignores the role of the networks within which economists operate, how their ideas diffuse and gain scientific credit, and it overlooks the explosion of the number of economists in the postwar period. Any narrative of transformation of economics  - mathematical formalization, modeling, econometrics, and more recently experimentation - will be incomplete if it fails to analyze both the structure and the modes of operation of such networks. To study such networks, I employ prosopography, or collective biography, a method that identifies and draws relations­hips between various people within a specific, well-defined historical or social context by collecting and analyzing statistically relevant biographical data. Whereas it is an established historiographic method, it has not been systematically applied to the history of economics.   

       

      III. Census of 1st Edition Copies of Isaac Newton’s Principia (with Moti Feingold)

      Our project presents the first comprehensive census of all extant copies of the first edition of Isaac Newton’s magnum opus Philosophiae naturalis principia mathematica (1687) together with an accompanying account of its dissemination and early readership.
