ANCO seminar

A bilingual regular seminar for the advancement of social ethics

This seminar brings together contributions to research in social ethics from several disciplines and fields, mainly from philosophy, economics, sociology, political science and law. Social ethics is understood as the normative dimension of social organization.
Contributions are expected to deal with applied questions (evaluation of public policies, evolution of inequalities, social relationships) and with more theoretical questions raised by the nature and foundations of social evaluation (with respect to which the tools of moral philosophy, political philosophy and normative economics have special relevance).

ANCo in its institutional and scientific environment

Initially, the ANCo seminar, created in 2004, was exclusively a NoSoPhi-based seminar; it benefits henceforth from a new institutional conjunction. Indeed, the Universities of Paris (Panthéon-Sorbonne University, René-Descartes University and Denis-Diderot University), are now on the path to uniting forces in an overarching regional university structure (PRES).
Besides, the NoSoPhi and Execo research teams are building blocks of a newly created structure, “Philosophies contemporaines” (EA 3562), part of the Panthéon-Sorbonne graduate school in philosophy.
Moreover, the NoSoPhi team ( Panthéon-Sorbonne University ) and several members of the CERSES team ( René-Descartes University ) teams are currently engaged in a joint research project, DELICOM project (2005-2008), funded by the National Research Agency (ANR). This project brings together philosophers, economists and mathematicians to advance frontier work on argument, authority and power in inter-institutional relationships (with special focus on the interplay of strategy and principles).


A companion collaborative work

The DELICOM collaboration has resulted in the setup of a collaborative medium for synthesis in social ethics, the Répertoire Analytique d'Ethique Sociale (RAES) .
Contributions draw from a variety or conceptual and analytic resources, such as those of moral and political philosophy, game theory, social choice theory and normative economics. A first set of RAES contributions is now available on the NoSoPhi website:
