Uncertainty, Disagreement, and Conflict
What makes economic and political institutions just, legitimate, or otherwise desirable? What ethical criteria should we use to evaluate the results of public policy? Conversely, given a set of ethical objectives, how do we design institutions and policies to best achieve those objectives in a complex, unpredictable, and interconnected world? To answer questions like these, the fast-growing field of Philosophy, Politics, and Economics – ‘PPE’ for short – combines methods, ideas, and arguments from three mutually complementary disciplines.
The course consist of 6 lecture tutorials in which the topics will be discussed from different disciplinary perspectives: Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE).
