About

Get a solid analytical and critical grasp of new views. Be part of an advanced discussion in the philosophy, methodology, history and culture of economics, and go on to a research or academic career.

Why do economists often fail to predict? Are there moral limits to markets? What, if anything, is wrong with the conception of rationality in economics? What are good accounts of the evolution of cooperation and morality? The Research Master in Philosophy and Economics at Erasmus University Rotterdam is unique in studying all aspects of the philosophy of economics. It is an intensive two-year programme, where you can profit from a truly interdisciplinary environment. This programme is part of the world's leading research institute Erasmus Institute for Philosophy and Economics (EIPE).
