PHIL 205 Winter 2023

Bar graph with eyes in it and text that reads "PHIL 205, Winter 2023, Philosophy of Economics"

The philosophy of economics is concerned with conceptual, methodological, and ethical issues in economic theory and practice. In this course, we'll consider questions such as: What can the philosophy of science teach us about economic methodology? What makes a particular conclusion in economics justified? How do economic models work? Is economics a science? How do value-based considerations play a role in economic reasoning and policy? What are the implications of using economics to model racial and gender inequality?
