ECON 357 - Topics in Humanomics


(Same as ENG 357 , PHIL 357 .) Prerequisite, consent of instructor. Using Socratic dialogue this course engages students in dialogically exploring economics, philosophy, and literature texts to examine two questions at the core of Humanomics: What makes a rich nation rich? What makes a good person good? This course encourages in-depth study of the co-constitutive social texts regarding the exponential economic growth of the last two-hundred years, asking students to consider how knowledge, ethics, and aesthetics shape and reshape basic principles of exchange and the human condition. This course may be repeated for credit if the topic is different. (Offered as needed.) 3 credits
