HPPE Summer 2013

Convenors: Raphaelle Schwarzberg and Gerardo Serra

Contact: g.serra@lse.ac.uk|  | r.schwarzberg@lse.ac.uk|   

By bringing together scholars from different disciplines, the HPPE 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.
