After a global financial crisis, and in the midst of a global supply shortage, it seems more than ever necessary to re-examine the fundamentals of our economic order.
Our SSHRC-funded project ‘Economic Pluralism: Past and Present’ (co-organized by Thimo Heisenberg Helen McCabe, and Johannes Steizinger) takes on this task – through a historical lens: Turning to little-known and infrequently studied economic visions from the long 19th century (visions by figures such as J.G. Fichte, G.W.F. Hegel, J.S. Mill and G. Simmel), it rediscovers philosophical ‘roads not taken’– and shows them to hold important insights for the present economic moment.
The core activity of our project is a two-day, hybrid workshop that will take place at McMaster University on September 2 and 3. You find more information about our workshop here: https://economicpluralism.com/?page_id=29
We look forward to your participation!
