Albert O. Hirschman, who died on December 10, 2012, was one of the most fascinating and versatile social scientists of the twentieth century. After fleeing Germany as a young opponent to the Nazi regime, he  moved across countries, languages, and disciplinary boundaries. He was a pioneer of development economics and other social sciences, to which he contributed with exemplary works on the analysis of the processes and mechanisms of political, economic, and social change. Following Hirschman's own interdisciplinary approach, this panel will explore the milestones of his incredibly rich intellectual journey.

The transcript from the roundtable discussion is available at Humanity Journal.
