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

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

Call for a Symposium on the Economists’ Philosophy Day, 17 Nov. 2022

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 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.

Proposals of approx. 500 words are expected by April 23, 2022. After acceptance, authors
are invited to submit the full version of their study for peer-review by August 25, 2022.
Proposals will be sent to

Valentin Cojanu, Editor, Journal of Philosophical Economics
