*Summer School of the Netherlands School for Research in Practical

Philosophy**: Ethics and Economics**

Date: 22-26 August 2010

Location: Woodbrookershuis, Barchem, the Netherlands Deadline for

application: April 1, 2010

The future of the global economy is very much an open question.

Especially since the financial crisis, debates about economic topics have

resurged, in public life as well as in academia. Economic institutions and

systems can be evaluated from a wide variety of points of view: economic,

sociological, psychological etc. In this summer school, we will look at

these institutions and systems from the perspective of contemporary

practical philosophy, especially moral and political philosophy. We will

focus on the contributions from these fiels to debates about key economic

institutions (such as the market, labour relations, taxation and others)

and more comprehensive economic systems (such as capitalism and socialism,

the welfare state and basic income society). We will pay close attention

both to the different normative frameworks and values that can be used for

such evaluations (justice, equality, freedom, quality of life, etc.), as

well as how to deal philosophically with the institutional details with

which economic reality confronts us.

The aim of the course is not only to offer an overview of contemporary

debates about ethics and economics but also a critical examination of

different approaches. In addition, we want to provide an opportunity for

PhD students to reflect on the methodology in their own research projects

and a forum to discuss how to deal with the controversies about

methodology in contemporary practical philosophy. The course will be of

interest to PhD-students from different disciplines (philosophy,

economics, political science, law, etc.) who are working on normative

evaluations of economic mechanisms, institutions and systems.
