Romanticism, Economics and the Question of ‘Culture’


Oxford University Press

From around the mid-1820s, political economy began the long slow process of intellectual consolidation in England. The professionalisation of economic science over the course of the 19th century was both intermittent and piecemeal. The early 19th-century controversies surrounding economic science did not, by any means, simply disappear without trace, and nor could its practitioners be expected to pursue influence and respectability for their discipline by retreating at once into ever more obscure and specialised researches. The intellectual hegemony of political economy within the nascent social sciences, together with the relatively late date at which it became fully professionalised, only intensified the question of its status and value within the broader intellectual history of the Victorian period.
