He demonstrates it by giving a review of different book titles from the field of history of economy. After that the author considers Schumpeters’s concept of economy as a science as well as his concept of the history of economy. Both of these concepts were explained in Schumpeter’s book History of Economic Analysis (1954). The author of the paper describes their essential charactheristics and specialities. He argues that Schumpeter, first, reduces economy (as a science) to the economics and then - the history of economy to the history of economic analysis. Schumpeter did that in a very special and interesting way; however, he remains within positivism and the neoclassical school.

It could be used only as one of the study guides to history of economic analysis. At the end of the paper the author compares the Schumpeter’s concept of economy, on the one side, and modern methodology, on the other side
