Introduction

The Program on Ethics, Politics and Economics sponsors interdisciplinary teaching and research in the Social Sciences and Humanities at Yale.  It is designed to foster informed debate about public policy in the light of disciplined reflection on the fundamentals of human association.  The Program was created in the belief that, for all the value of specialized fields and subdisciplines, these should not displace attempts to integrate empirical, analytical and normative concerns that range over different disciplines in the modern university.  The complex social realities of our time demand a wide-ranging understanding of the human sciences on the part of citizens and leaders alike; EP&E seeks to provide it.
