After a global financial crisis, and in the midst of a global supply shortage, it seems more than ever necessary to re-examine the fundamentals of our economic order. Our workshop ‘Economic Pluralism: Past and Present’ takes on this task – through a historical lens: Turning to little-known and infrequently studied economic visions from the long 19th century (visions by figures such as J.G. Fichte, G.W.F. Hegel, J.S. Mill, H. Cohen, G. Simmel, and R. Luxemburg), it discusses philosophical ‘roads not taken’– and shows them to hold important insights for the present economic moment. The two-day, hybrid workshop will take place at McMaster University on September 2 and 3. Zoom participation is available.
