Dear All,

The summer school will take place in Como, Italy, from August 28 to September 1, 2017. The topic is The Evolution of the Economic Theory of Decision-Making.

The school is co-organized by ESHET (European Society for the History of Economic Thought), PHARE (Centre for the Philosophy, History and Analysis of Economic Representation, University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne), University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, University of Insubria, and University of Milan.

PhD students and young scholars (PhD degree obtained after January 2016) who wish to attend the school should submit an extended abstract proposal in English of 750 to 1,000 words, or a full-paper proposal of up to 7,500 words.

A general discussion open to floor will follow each presentation.
