Abstract

In this volume Schindler argues that the proper ontology of the human being is that of the “being-as-gift,” that generates the “being-as-gratitude”. From this perspective, richness comes to consist in partaking in “reality-as-gift”: all the aspects of economy (production, exchange, etc.) need to be intrinsically informed by this view and not simply “directed” from the outside by a certain philosophical or cultural perspective. I have analysed the contents of the book in relation to the contemporary debate on the same topics.
