Economic history is an interdisciplinary field that fuses economics with history, two disciplines that often misunderstand one another. This chapter bridges these two disciplines by discussing archetypical approaches and research strategies in each. The authors contrast the differences between deductive, inductive and abductive reasoning in scholarly enquiry. They conclude with a call for consideration to (historical) context when conducting research in economics and economic history.
