Moral Reason and Economic History


This course looks at what some of the ‘great’ philosophers have said about economics, and what some of the ‘great’ economists have said about moral philosophy. The course is modeled after Hegel’s approach in The Philosophy of History. The point is to ask what the interaction between moral philosophy and economics can tell us about history and our own time. Among others, the thinkers discussed include Plato, Aristotle, Aquinas, Calvin, Smith, Kant, Hegel, Marx, Lukacs, Hayek, Rawls, Habermas, Marshall and Keynes.
