YSS2018 aims to provide an opportunity for relatively young scholars from Japan and overseas to exchange their current research ideas in more casual terms than the annual conference. So, we would like five speakers to talk about their research in the seminar, explaining their motivation, the relevant literature they wish to contribute to, and their supposed readership, in more detail. This would help attendees to know what is going on worldwide about the history of economics and/or the philosophy and methodology of economics. Each session has 15 minutes for presentation and 15 minutes for discussion.
