Course in Economy, Ethics and Finance

Course in Economy, Ethics and Finance

Thursday, February 18, 2010, corresponding to the beginning of the second semester of 2009/2010 academic year, the first course in Economy Ethics and Finance (FA0333, 5 ECTS) will officially begin, held at the Pontifical Salesian University of Rome. Lessons will be held on Thursday afternoons from 15:00 - 17:30.

Professors are: Mons. Mario Toso (Secretary of the Pontifical Commission for Justice and Peace); Prof. Alessandra Smerilli (Professor of Political Economy at the Pontifical Department of Educational Science, "Auxilium" of Rome); Prof. Luigino Bruni (Professor of Political Science at the University of Studies Milano-Bicocca and at Sophia University Institute in Loppiano, Florence); Dr. Antonio Fazio (already Governor of the Bank of Italy and honorary doctorate in Moral and Social Theology at the Pontifical Salesian University of Rome).

The course aims at providing students with the cultural and theoretical instruments for orienting themselves in the current debate over ethics and economy. In particular, theory will be faced from the distinguishing viewpoint of "civil economy", which is characterized by a personalistic and relational set-up.

The lessons are open to students registered in the Department of Philosophy, in which the course has been regularly included among course requirements, as well as all those who are interested and can participate by making prior arrangements with Department Dean Prof. Mauro Mantovani (tel 06.87290625, email: This email address is being protected from spambots.
