Third WINIR Symposium 2017 "The legacy of Ludwig Lachmann: Interdisciplinary perspectives on institutions, agency and uncertainty" - World Interdisciplinary Network for Institutional Research
Ludwig M. Lachmann (1906-1990) was an outstanding social scientist whose achievements ranged across a number of disciplines, including economics, sociology, law and philosophy. Well known for his work on Max Weber, his analysis of the limitations of equilibrium economics, and his contributions to the development of Austrian economics, Lachmann’s legacy revolves around three central themes: radical subjectivism, hermeneutics and human agency; market process and legal order; capital theory and macroeconomics. To celebrate Lachmann’s life and work, WINIR is holding a Symposium at his former university in South Africa. Submissions on any of the above topics, or any other topic related to Lachmann’s research, are welcome. Papers can be supportive or critical of Lachmann’s views. The Symposium will use Lachmann’s work as a point of departure to generate a wide-ranging discussion of the relations between uncertainty, agency and institutions. Abstract submissions from any discipline and theoretical approach are welcome.
