    Economy of Communion

    RESEARCH Summer School 2017

    Logo SS Olanda 2017Netherlands,
    August 23-27, 2017

    This multidisciplinary Summer School will reflect on ‘economy’ and ‘communion’, two words that are frequently perceived as being  very  distant from each other both  in academic literature and applied  sciences. The primary proposal and  provocation behind this Summer School, therefore, is precisely to generate the space to examine these terms together and to focus on their interplay: an ‘economy of communion’.

    HEIRS association, LUMSA UniversitySPES Europe and IU Sophia organize the two days seminar:

    Martin Luther’s Heritage

    in Modern Economics and Social Sciences

    Logo HEIRS 300LUMSA University, Rome – November 15-16, 2017

    October 31, 2017 is the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s posting of the 95 theses on the door of the Castle Church; an episode that has been considered the beginning of the protestant reform. Sombart, Weber, Bataille and many others have underlined the crucial role of Luther and the reformers in the birth of capitalism and its ‘spirit’. Much less attention has been paid by social scientists to Martin Luther’s heritage in the formation of the economic theory and, in general, of the modern social sciences.

    Prizes and Virtues

    an interdisciplinary workshop

    Logo Moneta FelicitasLUMSA University, Rome – April 10-11, 2017

    To an economist, a prize, such as a golden medal, is merely a special type of incentive. Any other kind of social scientist would be perplexed by thinking of the Nobel Prize, or of the Medal of Honour, in these terms.

    In contemporary neoclassical economics, the concept of incentive is a primitive, similar to that of “utility”, “price”, “production” or “consumption”, that all economists use but none feels the need to define: it is a foundation, or a corner stone, of the science of economics. However, if we tried to articulate what economists mean by incentives, we would probably find that they are considered as any “motivation” for adhering to and for complying with some form of contract.

    The Institute for Leadership and Social Ethics (ILSE) and the Erasmus Happiness Economics Research Organisation (EHERO) organize the conference:

    Driven by Hope: Economics and Theology in Dialogue

    Pianta 250Leuven (Belgium) - February 24–25, 2017

    Hope is a driving force for transformation, innovation, economic growth and wellbeing. Hope, often articulated as “an endorsed desire for an uncertain future event”, has a clear economic significance as do the unfortunate opposites have such as anxiety and inertness.

    The Theme - Communities and organizations that have preserved their creative and fruitful character over time have been able to live with members’ vulnerability to fellows’ wounds; they have not eliminated it entirely from their territories but have found ways for coping with it. Vulnerability (from Latin vulnus: wound), like many true words of the human realm, is ambivalent, because good vulnerability coexists with bad vulnerability, and often the two are intertwined.

    Life Satisfaction and Social Optimum:

    The challenge between subjective and objective wellbeing indicators

    Logo HEIRS 02 300 ridROME – 15-16 March, 2016

    Subjective wellbeing indicators are widely used in several disciplines to measure overall satisfaction in order to overcome limits and loopholes of traditional objective indicators. Researcher and policymakers have both a keen interest in understanding how subjective and objective indicators compare, how they perform and differ and how they can be used to assess the impact of policy-making.

    The Department of Business Economics, Health & Social Care of the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland, HEIRS and SSPH+ jointly organize the conference:

    Economics, Health and Happiness

    Logo Lugano EHHLugano – January 14, 15, 16th 2016

    Individual well-being is under pressure nowadays as people are becoming increasingly exposed to many sources of stress. Changes in socio-demographic (i.e. population aging) and epidemiological trends (with the increase in chronic diseases), and changes in labor force participation patterns (especially for women), affect family and inter-personal relationships. In addition to this, the retrenchment of the welfare state and the recent economic recession have contributed to reducing the resources available to families and individuals.

    Interdisciplinary Conference

    Rome

    In  writers and philosophers  like Shakespeare, Marx, Weber, Benjamin, Bataille, Girard, and more recently Taylor, Pasolini, Dumont, Agamben, the link between economy and religion, or more to the point, Christianity and Capitalism, has occupied a central theoretical place.

    In late XX century, in particular after the fall of communism, the religious nature of capitalism has been disregarded.

    Interdisciplinary Conference

    Public happiness was one of the mottos of the European classic school of political and civil economy, particularly on the Continent. This expression underlined the natural social dimension of human happiness, and the analysis of the link between economy and welfare as the main subject of the newborn economic science. Currently, happiness studies mainly emphasize individual well-being, and its connections with other economic and social variables.

     Seminario 2013 sul principio di fraternità

    L’interesse per il tema della fraternità, intesa non come relazione parentale o come legame interno ad una comunità, ma come principio di pensiero e di azione nello spazio pubblico, è cresciuto grandemente negli ultimi anni a livello internazionale, come testimoniano le numerose recenti pubblicazioni che se ne occupano.

Un dialogo interdisciplinare”, intendiamo riprendere e sviluppare il dibattito sulla questione  del  dono,  questa  volta  approfondendo,  ancora  una  volta  in  prospettiva  interdisciplinare,  il tema della possibile applicazione pubblica del paradigma del dono.
