Events and Classes
Education Hour | Religion and Capitalism: A Brief History of Economic Thought
May 7, 14, 21 & 28 — Join Political Scientist and Economist Taylor Rockhill for a four week course as he examines the global history of capitalism from the heydays of the Ottoman Empire in the 1300s, through the ‘Great Divergence’ of the 1500s and into the present global economic system. The class will examine the ‘Bourgeois Virtues’ as discussed by Dr Deirdre McCloskey and the moral philosophy of Adam Smith’s The Theory of Moral Sentiments through the writings of Stanford Economist Russ Roberts. It will also look at the intersections of Christianity, Islam, and Judaism as they interacted with various methods of globalisation over the centuries.
Education Hour meets between Sunday services (~ 9:05–9:50 am) in Wilson Hall. Please join us for a variety of discussions, lectures and topics!
