Stockholm Region Workshop on Economics & Philosophy
In order to facilitate the interaction between economists and philosophers in the Stockholm region, SU and KTH (Royal Institute of Technology) are co-organizing a one-day workshop on March 10th.
***Call for Abstracts***
Any topic that addresses both disciplines is welcome, including:
- methodological questions like the justification of idealizing models, the design of experiments, or the legitimacy causal inferences
- normative questions like the definition or measurement of welfare, well-being, equality, or their respective aggregations
- political questions like paternalism, equality, liberty etc., to the extent that they are influenced by economics as a science
- foundational questions like the conceptualization of probability, utility, preference, rationality, cooperation, or altruism
Our main aim is to bring together diverse people with a common interest from the region; we therefore will keep presentations short. If you are interested, please send a short abstract (max 400 words) to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 1st.
The workshop will be held at KTH. Details about locale, schedule etc will be posted in due time.
