Las virtudes en una teoría de la acción humana


  • Argandoña, Antonio

    () (IESE Business School)


La economía convencional se basa en una teoría de la acción humana sencilla, que ha mostrado ser eficaz en muchos casos, pero que presenta también inconvenientes importantes. Este capítulo presenta una teoría de la acción más rica, desarrollada con categorías económicas pero inspirada en la filosofía y la teología de base aristotélico-tomista, que permite superar esos inconvenientes, abriendo una vía natural, no forzada, al papel de los hábitos operativos (virtudes) en la acción y, por tanto, a la introducción de la ética en la acción humana.
