Abstract
In the works on history of economic thought it is accepted to single out only one scientific revolution. This scientific revolution is the emergence of the marginal utility theory having replaced the labor theory of value. In the paper it is proved that the similar picture arises only because the methodological principle of uniform approach to the studied events is broken. Actually, in the history of economic thought there are also forgotten scientific revolutions. Such scientific revolutions took place as well upon transition from mercantilists to physiocrats and from physiocrats to classics.
