Reflections on George Shackle: Three Excerpts from the Shackle Collection

Reflections on George Shackle: Three Excerpts from the Shackle Collection The Review of Austrian Economics, 16:1, 113–117, 2003. c 2003 Kluwer Academic Publishers. Manufactured in The Netherlands. Reflections on George Shackle: Three Excerpts from the Shackle Collection I am honoured to be invited to say a few words on this pleasant occasion—though it seemed a little daunting to find something that would be of interest both to George Shackle’s family and local friends, and to the professional economists here. At the invitation of Catherine Shackle and Stephen Frowen a year or two ago, my con- tribution to Economics as an Art of Thought was to survey the papers of George Shackle now bequeathed to the University Library at Cambridge. Reading the invariably delightful and perceptive letters that George wrote was a most enjoyable and informative exercise. I propose to read from three of the items that it was not possible to incorporate in the volume itself. These date from the years 1980 and 1981, after his meeting and marrying Catherine in 1979, which revived his spirits after the sadness of losing his first wife Susan in As I prepared these remarks, I saw the The Times obituary of John Watkins, former Professor of Philosophy at the London School of The Review of Austrian Economics Springer Journals
