Our article aims to stress that historical approach can contribute to address issues faced by modern economic theory. So as to show the relevance of historical analysis in economics, we first state the "methodology" we use in our researches. We emphasize its interdisciplinary feature since it involves moral and political philosophy, history of economic thought, economic theory and modern analytical tools. Second, we suggest two examples of works, finished or current, which are based on our methodology.
