This paper tells the story of the field of the history of economic thought in relation to the changing boundaries between the disciplines of economics and economic history. The most important period was the late nineteenth century when, after a couple of decades during which both economists and historians took an interest in the history of economic ideas, both disciplines stabilized in ways that left no room for it. Despite the emergence of the history of economic thought as a recognizable field within economics, it was progressively marginalized within the broader profession.
