Summary:

 

For what it’s worth. Challenging and negotiating value in literature and in economic theory

Type: 
Conference
Date: 
June 1, 2017 to June 3, 2017
Subject Fields: 
Cultural History / Studies, Economic History / Studies, Literature

The concept of value is at the heart of economic thought; it is part of most economic debates since the 18th century and has been conceptualized from different perspectives. The idea of economic value, understood as exchange value, has been the object of recent discussions not only concerning the determinants but also concerning the necessary presuppositions of its existence. In a similar way, literary theory is closely linked, since its beginning, to the attempt of establishing esthetic values (Werturteile).
