Few economists choose to write memoirs, and of those who do most adopt the "logic of my contributions£ approach. Tibor Scitovsky, Hungarian-born theorist who spent most of his career at Stanford and Berkeley, instead left us unpublished recollections, many of his childhood, others bearing on his personal philosophy (and shift therein) - of teaching, of the role of economic theory, of its imperfections. By their nature these Memoirs give us glimpses into his nimble, original thinking, without being weighed down with considerations of priority, answering critics, and so on. The paper tries to capture this spirit, frequently in Scitovsky’s own words.
