History as approached by the Centre for Economic and Social History François-Simiand consists of the analysis of economic and social phenomena considered in their historical duration. This formulation is not straightforward and involves a series of structuring analytical hypotheses. The Centre has a dual ambition: first, to promote a historical approach to economics; then, contribute to opening up economic history to make it fully social.

The Biography of Capitalism(s) – 10th to 18th Centuries
Summary
In this presentation, I will first discuss the different approaches vis-à-vis the periodization of capitalism. Then, the transition period towards merchant capitalism in Song China and West Asia from the 10th century onwards will be examined. Next, I will briefly touch upon the emergence of merchant capitalism proper, especially in northern Italian coastal cities. Finally, some Asio-African and European commercial capitalist and entrepreneurial-mercantilist capitalist activities and developments between the 16th and 18th centuries will be scrutinized.
