More praise for McCloskey’s books


Peter Boettke

“Many years ago I reviewed her How to Be Human, Though an Economist. I concluded that review with words that continue to right [sic] true to me about McCloskey’s overwhelming achievement as a person, an intellectual and as a scholar of economics, history, politics, and social philosophy.

Praise is due to Deirdre McCloskey for the work she has done and continues to do on behalf of reinvigorating the scholarly vocation in economics. She is a bold and courageous individual, a champion of intellectual integrity and effective comunication, and – it just so happens – a damn good economist, historian, and social philosopher.”

—Peter Boettke, “McCloskey on Bourgeois Dignity,” 14 Dec. 2010.
