A transcription of a 2019 conversation with the Duke University historian E. Roy Weintraub on his intellectual development over the 1980s from mathematician to economist to historian. The conversation also explores Weintraub’s early and continuing attempts to forge new ways to study the history of contemporary economics, and the role of science studies in providing a natural language for such explorations.  The transcription will be translated by Yann Giraud and published in French in the journal Zilsel: Science, technique, société.
