The Ethics and Economics Forum, where Seton Hall faculty from across the university come together to discuss economic justice, joined together Thursday, April 30, 2015 from 12:30 to 1:45 p.m.
The Ethics and Economics Forum is sponsored by the Department of Religion, the Center for Catholic Studies’ , the Bernard J. Lonergan Institute and the Micah Institute for Business and Economics.
During this meeting, Dr. Paula Alexander of the Stillman School of Business led a discussion on John Rawls’ ethical theory and its economic implications. Rawls was a moral philosopher at Harvard, and the author of Justice as Fairness.
The Forum’s conversations on economic justice aim to take an interdisciplinary approach, bringing together faculty from various schools and departments from across the university. The Forum is open to faculty presentation ideas and suggestions.
The Ethics and Economics Forum website, http://blogs.shu.edu/ethicsandeconomicsforum/, works to provide resources for interdisciplinary study of economic justice as well as an online forum to promote discussion beyond the Forum’s regular meetings.
