Carl Menger: One Century Later. Originalities and Modernities
Nice, November 24-26, 2021

The “Groupe de Recherche en Droit Economique et Gestion” (GREDEG) UMR 7321 of the CNRS and Université Côte d’Azur is organizing in Nice, France, from November 24 to 26, 2021, an international conference dedicated to the contributions of Carl Menger to economics, on the occasion of the centenary of his death.

Carl Menger is recognized both as the founder of the Austrian tradition in economics and as one of the main actors in the marginalist revolution at the end of the 19th century. His writings continue to inspire and unify an economic tradition torn by deep internal disputes. He represents a solid rallying point for theorists attached to the Austrian or New Austrian schools. The relations between the marginalists and Menger constitute the starting point of a reflection on the originality of the author and the potentialities of his approach, potentialities which have fallen into oblivion as a result of the inclination to patch over differences between different currents of though.

We invite you to submit a paper proposal that could sheds light on the originality and modernity of Menger’s theoretical and methodological thinking. This originality includes inter alia the following themes: Menger’s particular conception of the economic agent and forms of rationality; his analysis of institutions; his theory of money; his analysis of production as a temporal process; the specificities of his methodology; his position in relation to the use of formal tools; the specific forms of complexities which have been, more or less, attached to his thought…

A special issue is planned in the European Journal of the History of the Economic Thought, for a selection of papers.
