On the Philosophy-Economics Network

Posted on 13 June 2015 by Małgorzata Dereniowska

Doing economics always requires making philosophical choices. Although this aspect is as old as economics itself, it has been particularly highlighted in the recent debates on the status of economics and the scope of its subject. On this line, along with the growing interest in topics at the intersection of economics and philosophy, there is a demand for a platform in which these two disciplines can more actively and effectively interact. The Philosophy-Economics Network aims to fill this gap. The key idea is to contribute to the establishment of an active network among scholars working in these fields. The main objective of the Philosophy-Economics Network is to promote and facilitate interactions between philosophy and economics on contemporary issues, and to circulate relevant information.

The Network fosters its vision and mission by means of creating a platform for an exchange of information, organizing biannual conferences on Economic Philosophy, extending the community of scholars, and encouraging interaction. The goals of the network and its website are to:

  • gather and share information in the international community interested in economic philosophy,
  • raise and facilitate discussions on questions of common interest,
  • identify and promote the institutions and programs that foster the dialogue between economists and philosophers,
  • promote and co-organize events (such as the conference Economic Philosophy).

We hope to build this active community of scholars with you. If you wish to contact us, or to share information, please go to Membership/Contact.
