Registered author(s):


    This paper attempts to take stock on the vexed subject of the relations between Walras and Bortkiewicz. In part I, a survey of the existing literature allows, by contrast, to define the still unexplored zones of these two authors? personal and scientific relationships. Part II offers a broad canvas of the various stages of this strange and erratic collaboration over a little more than a decade (1887-1899). These first two parts also provide an illustration of the techniques used by Walras to build his scientific network. Part III suggests a systematic analysis of the part played by Bortkiewicz in three of the most difficult theoretical problems discussed by Walras in the triangular debate with Edgeworth: the definition of the entrepreneur, the theory of capital and the notion of tâtonnement.
