Schumpeter's Plea: Historical Methods in the Study of Entrepreneurship
This paper outlines the case for why and how historical methods are important to the study of entrepreneurship. We show that research in entrepreneurship has displayed declining attention to historical context since the field first emerged in the 1940s. We discuss why analysis of historical context as well as individual and firm behavior is essential to the study of entrepreneurship.
