Psychologists think highly of us economists – which has probably to do with our supposedly superior math skills. Famous psychologists like Anderson and Edwards created whole new fields in psychology on the basis of an interpretation of economics. Anderson’s Act(-R) and Edwards’ Behavioral Decision Theory were initiated at least partly to test or provide an underlying structure for economics. But what bothers me is that their understanding of (the histroy of) economics differs completely from that of economics and its historians. Edwards for instance, introduces Samuelson as providing a normative psychological theory on individual human decision behavior under certainty, and sets himself to experimentally testing this theory. As a result our historical reflections will only be comprehensible to economists. My God, we really are an endangered species.
