May I, first of all, reiterate the Master’s welcome, particularly to our many visitors from overseas, and to those of you who are here for the first time. We hope you will return. I believe we have here today one of the finest groups of Keynes scholars ever assembled in the United Kingdom. In the last few years, four books have been published on the theme of the interrelationships between Keynes’s philosophy and his economics — an edited collection by Tony Lawson and Hashem Pesaran entitled Keynes’ Economics, Methodological Issues, Anna Carabelli’s book on Keynes’s Method, Athol Fitzgibbons’ book on Keynes’s Vision, and finally, Rod O’Donnell’s volume on Keynes: Philosophy, Economics and Politics. Four of these authors are here this afternoon, along with many others who have made important contributions to the field.
