Politics, Philosophy & Economics Discussions at Pea Soup: Juliana Bidadanure’s ‘Making Sense of Age-Group Justice’

We are thrilled to have our first Politics, Philosophy & Economics online discussion in Pea Soup’s new format.

On the 28th of September 2016  we will be discussing Juliana Bidadanure‘s outstanding paper “Making Sense of Age-Group Justice: A Time for Relational Equality?”. Juliana offers a cutting-edge contribution to our understanding of intergenerational inequality. The paper is available here.

We have an excellent line-up of academic experts to discuss Juliana’s paper.  Paul Bou-Habib (Essex) will start us off with a critical précis of the paper.   David Axelssen (LSE), Paula Casal (Pompea Fabra), Kasper Lippert-Rasmussen (Aarhus), Martin O’Neill (York) and Christian Schemmel (Manchester) will offer their comments. Do join us!

PEA Soup 3.0: The Launch

We are excited to welcome you to the revamped, retooled, rebooted, and revitalized PEA Soup, now on the WordPress platform and supported by the Prindle Institute of Ethics, out of DePauw University, directed by Andrew Cullison. When last we spoke with you in December 2015, we (the Daves Shoemaker and Sobel) had announced we were stepping down from PEA Soup and had invited folks to write us with ideas for moving the blog forward, rather than just shutting it down. Andy Cullison offered many excellent ideas for the blog that the Prindle Institute could support, and the number of exciting new possibilities persuaded us to stay on board as co-editors for the foreseeable future. We think with Prindle’s support, PEA Soup will be better than ever. We expect and encourage a serious increase in content without any loss of quality.

New Blog: Virtue, Happiness, & the Meaning of Life

“Our 28-month project uses research focused on self-transcendence to advance understanding of the interrelations of virtue, happiness, and the meaning of life. We believe that self-transcendence is the missing link in current research, crucial to the spiritual dimension of human life.

Research in the humanities and social sciences suggest that individuals who feel they belong to something bigger and better than they are on their own—a family with a long history and the prospect of future generations, a spiritual practice, work on behalf of social justice—often feel happier and have better life outcomes than those who do not.”

You can find the blog here.
