Credits: 10
Semester: 1
Department: PHILOSOPHY

Overview Overview
 

This module, team-taught by members of the three departments, provides an overview of the approaches by various thinkers to the question of how values, markets and governments are intertwined in the determination of individual and national wealth or poverty. The module has three strands with the first discussing some philosophical sources in the first part (taught by members of the Philosophy Department), the second discussing topics such as globalization, power and legitimacy (taught by members of the Sociology Department) and the third considering the tensions between the wellbeing of individuals and communities and the wealth of nations individually or jointly (taught by members of the Department of Economics, Finance and Accounting). Further topics will include idealized forms of government vs. tyranny, economic and political explanations and consequences of individual focussed policies, as well as means of institutional and democratic control. This will open up further lines of enquiry using contemporary approaches in formal and normative political theory and economic theory.
