Notes on the Importance of the Teaching of the History of Economic Theories for the Students of the UEP


  • Jitka Koderová


The article deals with the question how important is the knowledge about the history of the economic theory for the students of the University of Economics of Prague (UEP) in the time when the courses of standard micro and macro economics are one of the main parts in the education of the young economists. History of Economic Theories (HET) had been taught at the Czech universities of economics since 1945. 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 development of economic theory. In 1993 HET ceased to be obligatory in the new system of education in the UEP. The importance of knowledge of the history of economic theories caused, that the new subject Economic History, in which HET is included, begins to be obligatory for all students of the UEP.
