    In Abhandlungen von Dorfman und Samuelson 1986 und van Suntum 1988 wird Thünen's berühmte Grabsteinformel unter Berücksichtigung seiner spezifischen Annahmen bestätigt. Allerdings wird Thüenen's Vorgehen zur Erzielung dieses Ergebnisses bis heute kontrovers diskutiert. Mit diesem Papier wird versucht, Thüenen's Vorgehen Schritt für Schritt nachzuvollziehen. Zu diesem Zweck wird Thüenen's Ableitung zunächst graphisch dargestellt. Anschließend wird eine algebraische Rekonstruktion des Problems dem Thünen'schen Vorgehen gegenüber gestellt. Bestätigungen und Kritiken der Lohnformel in den letzten Dekaden werden vor diesem Hintergrund kurz kommentiert. -- Contributions by Dorfman and Samuelson in 1986 and van Suntum in 1988 endorse Thünen's famous tombstone formula apunder his specific assumptions. Nonetheless Thünen's proce-dure to achieve the result is a subject of controversy to this day. This paper attempts to follow Thünen's approach step by step. For this purpose Thünen's deduction of the tombstone for-mula is first represented graphically. In a second step an algebraic reconstruction of the prob-lem is contrasted with Thünen's approach. Confirmations of the tombstone formula as well as critiques of the last decades are briefly commented against this background.
