Description

Human Flourishing: Liberty, Virtue, Markets, Community ... and Nudges? - ID:62054 Human Flourishing: Liberty, Virtue, Markets, Community ... and Nudges? - ID:62054 The project brings together scholars interested in reconsidering both the Enlightenment debates, and the contemporary debates over freedom, markets, virtue, and human flourishing. Three symposia will be organized and provide the core of journal issues or sub-sections of a book. The foundation for these symposia are two debates (one historical, one current) that intersect in several ways. By bringing together key figures in the current debate with historians versed in the classical economists' debate, as well as philosophers and theologians interested in current discussion of markets, community and strategic interventions, we hope to move toward a clearer understanding of individual liberty, virtue, human flourishing and markets today. Deliverables: three journal symposia, providing approximately 20 articles. David Schmidtz has already promised at least one issue of Social Philosophy & Policy to our project. We may also consider another issue or approach other journals. The goal is to look seriously at how markets and communities inform individual liberty and promote virtue and human flourishing. We will bring together leading figures from many sides for conversation aimed to produce academic work of high quality.
