Personhood and Economics: Insights from Dostoyevsky

Session 11 - Friday, June 23 -
3:45 PM to 5:05 PM

Intermediate Course

We are witnessing the reductio ad absurdum of the liberal individualist view of the person, and many are looking to collectivist answers. Dostoevsky allows us to see that there is another way, between those two extremes. In this lecture we will discuss Dostoevsky’s view of the human person, and some implications of that view for ethical and economic topics.
