CFP: Interdisziplinärer Workshop: Gleichgewicht und Ökonomie, Tübingen (01.06.2018)

Im Kontext des Promotionsverbunds „Theorie der Balance“, erforscht der Workshop den Zusammenhang von Ökonomie und Gleichgewicht aus interdisziplinärer Perspektive. Ökonomisches Denken ist seit Adam Smith und Karl Marx geprägt von einem Diskurs des Gleichgewichts, der Stabilität und des Ausgleichs. Bei Smith wird die Stabilität garantiert durch die Selbstregulierung des Marktes – die unsichtbare Hand, die hinter dem Rücken der Einzelinteressen das Wohl des Gemeinwesens fördert. Smith versöhnt so das unreglementierte Marktgeschehen mit dem Ideal einer stabilen Marktwirtschaft.
