2016 - 2017 CLE & Symposia


The Eleventh Annual John F. Scarpa Conference on Law, Politics, and Culture

Is the Present Day Spirit of Capitalism a Problem? Christian Reflections on Economy, Finance, Culture, and Regulation

 

Featuring Kathryn Tanner,
Frederick Marquand Professor of Systemic Theology and Religious Studies at Yale University

 

Friday, Nov. 11, 2016

10:30 a.m. - 4:35 p.m.

The current configuration of capitalism, in which finance plays a dominant role, has the capacity to shape people in ways that hinder the development of a critical perspective on it. Professor Kathryn Tanner's distinguished 2016 Gifford Lectures, the focus of this year's John F. Scarpa Conference on Law, Politics, and Culture, identify the various cultural forms of finance-dominated capitalism that have such an effect and suggest their force in life may be countered by Christian beliefs and practices. In this way, her lectures reverse the project of Max Weber in Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism, while employing much the same methods he used. Pope Francis's reinvigoration of Catholic social doctrine as it pertains to the culture and regulation of economy provides a timely context within which to consider the arguments advanced by Professor Tanner in her Gifford lectures.

The symposium takes place on Friday, Nov. 11 from 10:30 a.m. to 4:35 p.m. in the Laurence E. Hirsch '71 Classroom (room 101) of the Law School. This program is approved by the Pennsylvania Continuing Legal Education for 3.5 substantive CLE credits and 1 ethics CLE credits.
