Repugnant Behaviours

WINIR WORKSHOP ON REPUGNANT BEHAVIOURS (ONLINE, FEBRUARY 2021) — Formally introduced in economics by Nobel laureate Alvin Roth, the concept of repugnance arises in the debate among philosophers (e.g., Elizabeth Anderson, Michael Sandel, Debra Satz) and other social scientists (e.g., Kristie Blevins, Amitai Etzioni, Kimberly Krawiec, Amartya Sen, Philip Tetlock) about how and why moral concerns, taboos and sacred values place, or ought to place, limits on market transactions.
