Blogs: Bargaining Game & Erik Angner’s Blog

Although the interactions between philosophy and economics give rise to many academic works, researchers somtimes take on their personal time to tackle some topics in a freer way in the form of blog posts. And it is precisely this informal tone which makes all the originality and the interest of these non academic contributions.

Two blogs seem especially deserving to be known and visited:

Bargaining Game

Bargaining Game is a recent blog dedicated to economic philosophy. The author of this blog,  Cyril Hédoin is full professor of economics in the University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne. He “has been for 7 years the main author on a similar blog called “Rationalité Limitée“, exclusively written in French. [He] intends to write essentially about the same topics. The posts should also be similar in their form and their objective: [he] uses the blog essentially as a way to formalize and test ideas, and secondary to communicate on his research (publications, working papers, conferences [he] intends to) as well as on the research by others on topics on which he has some interest ” (text copied-pasted from the presentation page of Bargaining Game).

Erik Angner’s Blog

Simply entitled “Blog”, Erik Angner’s Blog is a also a recent blog dedicated to economic philosophy. Erik Angner is “associate professor of Philosophy, Economics, and Public Policy at George Mason University, [he] thinks of himself as a moral philosopher in the old-fashioned sense of the word. Trained first in the philosophy of science, [he] has a special interest in economic sciences and their relationship to ethics and social and political philosophy.” (text copied-pasted from Erik Angner’s site, tab “home”).

These two blogs have tackled recently the interesting topic to discuss which is the best expression for describing the scholar works at the interaction between economics and philosophy (see Erik Angner’s “In defense of ‘philosophical economics’” and Cyril Hédoin’s “‘Philosophy of Economics’ or ‘Philosophical Economics’“).
