The name of the Austrian economist, Carl Menger, is familiar even to many with but rudimentary knowledge of the history of economics. Menger is repeatedly referred to in the treatises dealing with the development of economic doctrine as one of the independent formulators of the principle of marginal utility, and he is thereby conventionally linked with such men as Jevons, Walras, and John Bates Clark. He is also remembered for the acrimonious "battle of methods" (Methodenstreit) in German-Austrian economics, which, indeed, the volume here with translated may be said to have initiated.
