Third Summer School in Philosophy of Economics

         June 23 – 28, 2024

The summer school is intended to foster reflection on the changing identity of economics after the empirical turn, model transfer in between economic sub-fields, how economics is modelling the social structure of science, and other cutting edge topics in history and philosophy of economics.

The school consists of lectures, presentations, and tutorials. The invited speakers lecture on the topics related to the school’s general theme, while students have 30 minutes to present their papers. During tutorials, a faculty member discusses with a student their paper in a one-to-one 1-hour discussion.

Papers by students can address any topic in the philosophy, methodology, or history of economics, also a topic different from the summer school’s main theme.

Social activities include visits to Como, Torno (a village on the Lake of Como), plus various drinks and dinners.

The school will take place at Villa del Grumello, in Como, Italy, from June 23 (welcome drinks and registration, from 6.30 pm) to June 28 (end of school at 2.30 pm), 2024.
