Instructor: Kirun Sankaran. This course meets MW 3:35 – 4:50 p.m. in PE 2066.

This course is the capstone of the PPE sequence. It will be run like a graduate seminar, and is designed to examine advanced issues further equip you with tools at the intersection of politics, philosophy and economics. The specific focus of the course will be on models and their use in both philosophy and social science. How do models help economists, political scientists, and philosophers think about important descriptive and normative issues? What’s the relationship between models and reality? Should models be “realistic” or can they have false assumptions?
