New Research Seminar Series of "Markets, Culture & Ethics" Research Centre in collaboration with the School of Theology
Also for 2019-20 academic year the Markets, Culture & Ethics Research Centre has organized a series of Research Seminars in cooperation with the School of Theology.
This year the theme will focus on "Classical Political Economy: Philosophy of Social Sciences and Economic Science."
The aim of the seminar series is to present students with a well-rounded perspective on the Scottish Enlightenment's philosophical and epistemological grounds for the method of the "Classical" school of political economy and the vision of economic development that thinkers from Adam Smith to John Stuart Mill presented in the late 18th and early 19th century.
The seminars, taken mostly in English, will focus on the intellectual content of this school of political economy, and will also consider the relation of this school's views on economic dynamism to Christian humanism.
The students of the Faculty of Theology and the PhD students of the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross who participate will be able to obtain 1 formative credit for a total frequency of 10 lessons lasting an hour. At the end of the seminars, students will be asked to prepare a paper on the topics covered, while for doctoral students it will be necessary to consult their supervisor to agree on the amount of work to be done.
For further details it is possible to consult the calendar attached for the seminars of the first semester 2019- 2020. The dates for the meetings of the second semester will follow soon.
