Proposals for papers or sessions could be on any topic relevant to the history of economic thought, and were not restricted to the conference theme.
However, the organisers of the conference particularly welcomed proposals of papers or sessions that fell into the ESHET 2017 conference theme: Rationality in Economics.
Special attention was therefore granted to proposals which enrich views on the role of rationality in the history of economic thought, from the origins up to today. Examples include:
- Rationality and self-interest
- Individual and social rationality
- Rationality and uncertainty
- Rationality and satisficing
- Rationality in macroeconomics
