Core course for Economics and Management

Anno:

Modulo:

This course aims to provide students with a critical perspective on some issues that are central to economic science from a historical point of view. The course will consist of three units:

1- civil economy versus political economy: two traditions in comparison. This unit will offer some historical and methodological elements to help identify the main differences between the Mediterranean tradition of civil economy and the Anglo-Saxon tradition of political economy.

2- economics and theology: this unit will deal with some problems concerning the links between economic science and biblical humanism. Among them are the economic dimension of religion, merit and meritocracy, gift and gratuitousness.

3- economics and ethics classics. In this last unit, we will analyse some classical texts dealing with the relationship between economics and ethics. Authors include A. Sen, A. Hirschman, R. Sugden.
