ABSTRACT
This article focuses on subject of labor history. The article summarizes the respective contributions of rationalism, idealism and pragmatism, and argued that they would all continue to play a valuable role within the subject. For it would be hard to imagine labor history without a long-term perspective on tendencies within the economy and the political system, and a sympathetic appreciation of forms of popular life and thought, and a close analysis of the development and interaction of bargaining institutions. Individual historians were likely to be drawn to one of these approaches more than the others, and the field would therefore continue to be characterized by a lively debate between them. This would hopefully lead to the correction of imbalances in individual contributions, to the clarification of common problems, and to a revival of a wider interest in the subject of labor history.
