"This essay presents an overview of the attitudes of leading nineteenth century economists towards the adoption of an analogy to natural science as an appropriate model for economics. This involved a choice between physical science and biological science as well as a rejection of earlier roots in social philosophy. The impact of Darwinian evolutionary theory in the last four decades of the century created serious differences over this question of method."
