What is economic personalism? A phenomenological analysis
AbstractMuch like phenomenology, the philosophical movement of economic personalism has preceded its complete and clear awareness of itself as a philosophical position. This paper attempts to articulate what exactly this position is by employing realist phenomenology as its analytical tool. The organization of this paper consists of three parts. The first is a linguistic analysis of the names 'economics' and 'personalism' that attempts to arrive at a joint meaning of these terms. The second is a regressive inquiry from meaning to a priori apprehension, and this examination is aimed at making the essential nature of economic personalism perspicuous. The third presents the necessary and sufficient conditions for either conduct or a situation to quality as a object in the domain of economic personalism.
