Freedom, Markets, and Well-being Fall 2019

First Day


We have two aims:

  1. Doing some genuinely synthetic work in PPE. Specifically, we will focus on how economists and philosophers think about inequality.

  2. Preparing to write the thesis in the spring.

I gave out three documents concerning the thesis: a timetable for the 2019-2020 year, a thesis reader signature sheet, and a list of past thesis titles (the theses themselves are in the Philosophy Library in 208 Pearsons). These are all available on Sakai.

Note that you will have to turn the thesis reader sign-up sheet in by the end of the term. What does “turning it in” mean? It means that the faculty members who have agreed to serve as readers for your thesis have signed it.
