Philosophy of Finance Fellowship

Previous Themes

The Philosophy of Finance Fellowship, formerly called the Philosophy of Finance Working Group, draws together undergraduate and graduate students in order to explore the work of both scholars and practitioners in order to address the fundamental questions raised by the practice of finance.

The program seeks to create the space necessary for this interdisciplinary approach, melding theory and practice, to cultivate a fullness and nuanced disposition towards the field of finance.

The Philosophy of Finance Fellows meet monthly over lunch to explore fundamental questions raised in the practice of finance.
