Teaching of the History of Economic Theories in the University of Economics Prague
AbstractThe article deals with the question in which extent the students of the University of Economics Prague (UEP) could get knowledge about the development of the economic theory. In the time, when it was impossible to buy any of foreign economist (with exception of Marxian authors form the socialist countries), the only way was the study of History of Economic Theories (HET), which had been taught at the UEP since its foundation in 1953 until 1993. At the beginning of this period HET was oriented mainly on the critique of selected non-Marxian economic theories, especially of the Austrian school, but in the course of time the critique was displaced by the positive explication of the commented theories. In 1993 HET ceased to be obligatory due to the bad assessment of the ability of the Department to ensure lessons in the new system of education in the UEP. But now the importance of knowledge of development of economic theories is stressed again and the new subject Economic History, in which HET is included, begins to be obligatory for all students of the UEP.
