On December 4th, Orri Stefansson (Department of Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method, LSE) will present one of his works is in the seminar Historical and Philosophical Perspectives on Economics (HPPE) organised at the London School of Economics (from 1:00 pm, in Clement House 2.04). The title of his presentation is “Valuing What Could Have Been”.
By bringing together scholars from different disciplines, the HPPE seminar provides a platform for discussing the historical evolution of economic thinking and its philosophical implications. From Ancient Greece to contemporary Africa, all topics and perspectives are welcome. The aim of the seminar is to offer graduate students and scholars at any stage of their career the possibility to present their work, and enrich our understanding of the processes of historical change and the philosophical context (epistemological, moral, ontological) in which the theory and practice of economics and other social sciences take place.
Convenors: Raphaelle Schwarzberg and Gerardo Serra.
