Presentation

This workshop is jointly organized by the École Française de Rome and the Collegio Carlo Alberto (Moncalieri-Turin), and is part of two different series. In 2010 and 2011, the Collegio Carlo Alberto hosted two previous editions of the workshop Revisiting the Boundaries of Economics: A Historical Perspective, where important issues in economics were discussed from an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary point of view. This is the third edition of such workshop, focusing on metaphors and models which have been adopted from other sciences in order to conceptualize the measurement of the economic reality. The École Française de Rome is on the other hand starting with this initiative a new research program, focused on Quantitative Knowledge and Organizational Practices: other meetings concerning (Ac)counting and (Market)ing will follow in 2013 and 2014. The focus of such program is on the relationship between quantification procedures and their impact on practices, not only as a special case in the relationship between knowledge and organization (power), but also as showing the complex processes affecting theories when applied in practice. The aim is to sketch down, for some crucial disciplines, a first map of the parallel historical evolution of their scientific status and their instrumentality, identifying at least the major discontinuities. The workshop (Econo)metrics: from Political Arithmetic to the Probability Revolution links together both these interdisciplinary and pragmatist perspectives, focusing on the emergence of a probabilistic approach to the measurement of economic phenomena.
