Dear Pr. Lee,
I'm a French PhD candidate in History of Economic Thought. My interest is
in the relationships between economics and biology in the post WWII
I'm currently trying to assess the reaction of the URPE to what is
generally called the "sociobiology debate" in the years after 1975. As I
know, URPE members demonstrated at the AEA annual meeting of 1977 against
bioeconomics and sociobiology.
Pr. Bruno Tinel told me that you were in charge of digitalizing the URPE
newsletter, beside your own interest in heterodox economics and the
history of economics in the XXth century. I thought it was a good try to
ask you whether you had any knowledge about documents issued by the URPE
about sociobiology. If I may ask, I would be also very much interested in
any broader reflexion you'd have on the topic.
