David Braunstein, member of GSIS, writes his philosophical dissertation on the emergent system of economy in the Luhmannian sense. That conception can be understood as a criticism of the assumptions of homo economicus that is still en vogue in mainstream economics.
Braunstein presented his ideas in two public events that – because of the COVD-19 pandemic – took place outdoor at the Vienna office of the GSIS Institute in two parts, the first on 28 August 2020 and the second on 16 September 2020.
