The Economists’ Philosophy Day – A Journal of Philosophical Economics celebration of philosophical reflection in the economic science (1 article)

In deference to the work of all inquisitive minds, past and present, who have assiduously embraced philosophical reflection to find a path to understanding the consequential events for people’s material life in the economic science and other social sciences, the Journal of Philosophical Economics announces this Symposium on the Economists’ Philosophy Day.

In October 2005, the UNESCO General Conference proclaimed the third Thursday of November every year “World Philosophy Day” recalling that “philosophy is a discipline that encourages critical and independent thought and is capable of working towards a better understanding of the world and promoting tolerance and peace.”

It is in this spirit that J Phil Econ proposes to celebrate an Economists’ Philosophy Day by organizing an online or hybrid plenary session of scientific communications dedicated to the philosophical landmarks through which our science has been challenged, for better or worse. Our call invites all those interested in the study of social sciences to contribute not only to the thinking inspired from enduring ideas of philosophy, but also to the way in which they have been adopted, adapted, or made known to advance theoretical and applied research.

A preceding symposium opened a debate on the way economists are taught philosophy. The contributors left thoughtful suggestions for advancing an economic science which is appropriate for understanding the progress or regress of humankind’s material life. We continue this discussion and place it on the hopefully permanent platform of celebrating the day of philosophy.
