CANCELLED: Book symposium: ‘Agency, Freedom and Choice’
17 March @ 13:00 - 17:10
Due to current Covid-19 situation, we have decided to cancel the upcoming symposium on ‘Agency, Freedom and Choice’.
We intend to organise the event at a later date, after the situation is resolved.
The OZSW study group Philosophy of Economics together with Erasmus Institute for Philosophy and Economics (EIPE) organises a symposium on Constanze Binder’s recent book ‘Agency, Freedom and Choice’ (2019).
The book examines the value freedom has for human agency and development, and the implications this has for welfare measurement and public policy.
