PPE 1004: Introduction to Philosophy, Politics, and Economics
This course discusses classic and contemporary readings in philosophy, politics, and economics with historical and current relevance. Core concepts and topics span the history of moral, political, and economic thought; political economy; equality and fairness; socioeconomic status, power, class, diversity; and the evolution of the human condition.
This course trains students to look beyond the boundaries of academic disciplines by offering an integrated study of philosophy, politics, and economics. The course enhances students’ understanding of each discipline, its methods, and implications. It trains students to make decisions that are not only economically sound, but also socially, ethically, and politically informed.
This course addresses advanced topics at the intersection of philosophy, politics, and economics, such as economic rationality, utility theory, game theory, social choice theory, political economy, markets, justice, and democracy. The course allows senior students to synthesize their knowledge gained during their PPE studies and apply it to an interdisciplinary research topic of their choice.
