Occupy Philosophy:

Dialogue and Reflection on Economic Inequality, Capitalism, and Democracy in America

February 10-11, 2012

In light of recent events illuminating ongoing critiques of how wealth and resources are distributed in America, it is timely to interrogate the ethical, conceptual and methodological issues arising when capitalism and other political economic systems are evaluated. This conference is primarily concerned with the ways that philosophy can mediate discussions of economic power, human welfare, institutional justice, and the cost-benefit analyses that inform economic choices.
