'The Logic of Markets and the Logic of Gift' Event Details: 3:00 p.m., April 04, DuBourg Hall, Sinquefield Stateroom
A panel of Saint Louis University experts will explore questions about money in business
ethics and social justice as one of the special events of the 2013 Greater St. Louis
Humanities Festival Thursday, April 4 through Saturday, April 6.
"The Logic of Markets and the Logic of Gift" will take place at 3 p.m. Thursday, April 4, in
the Sinquefield Stateroom in DuBourg Hall. The event is free and open to the public
and all members of the SLU community.
Panel organizer Greg Beabout, Ph.D., associate professor in the department of
philosophy at the College of Arts and Sciences, stressed the importance of
dialogue on this topic, using Pope Benedict XVI's own words to describe the
central theme of this panel.
"The great challenge before us, accentuated by the problems of development
in this global era and made even more urgent by the economic and financial
crisis, is to demonstrate, in thinking and behavior, that in commercial relationships
the principle of gratuitousness and the logic of gift can and must find their place
within normal economic activity."
"This challenge was articulated by Pope Benedict XVI in his last encyclical,
Caritas in veritate." Beabout added.
The interdisciplinary panel of SLU scholars will bring the resources of their
individual disciplines to bear on the question of the relationship between the log
of gift and the logic of markets.
The panelists include:
- David Borgmeyer, Ph.D. (International Studies)
- Vince Casaregola, Ph.D. (English)
- Terry Dempsey, S.J. (Fine and Performing Arts)
- Rubén Rosario Rodríguez, Ph.D. (Theological Studies)
- Beth Rath, Ph.D. (Philosophy)
- Bonnie Wilson, Ph.D. (Economics)
The theme for this year's St. Louis Humanities Festival is "Money, Money! Need, Greed and Genorosity." The event, in partnership with the Missouri Humanities Council, includes a broad range of lectures, literary readings, film and theater productions, and discussions, hosted by SLU, Washington University, Webster University, the University of Missouri St. Louis, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville and the Contemporary Art Museum.
