Add a talk


The Centre for the Philosophy of the Natural and Social Sciences at the London School of Economics will host a one-day workshop on the interpretation of (revealed) preferences and preference-based modeling in economics. The methodology of revealed preference approaches and their associated behavioral interpretation of preference have been subject to seemingly devastating, long-standing criticisms from both philosophers and economists, but continue to be prevalent in economics. The talks in this workshop will explore both defenses of and alternatives to revealed preference approaches, and tackle larger questions about the methodology of economics, particularly questions around the nature and role of intention-based modeling. 

The workshop is free and open to the public, but registration is much appreciated. Please register on philevents or email Kate Vredenburgh ([email protected]) to register. The workshop will take place on November 10th at LSE, in the Parish Hall Building, 2.03, starting at 9:30am (note the updated location!).
