An interdisciplinary conference "Economic Theology, Theological Economics"
Topics: - Theology and economics in historical perspective, with a special focus on the Protestant Reform/Catholic Reform period, when the “spirit” of capitalism began. - Market and grace, economy and gift: are there influences of theological debates? - The theological influences in the formation of the Italian/Latin XVII century Civil Economy, in relation to Smith’s Political Economy? - Economic theory as a new form of religion. - The different visions of capitalism (US, European, Latin, Chinese, Japanese): it is possible, not only historically, to think of a non-capitalist market economy? - The charismatic principle in the economic and civil life. - Is it possible a capitalism without a spirit? And which spirit is, today, replacing the old spirit of capitalism? - What are the implications of ‘economic theology’ in organization and business life? - Papers on specific “classic” figures of economic theology (Augustin, Luther, Calvin, Marx, Weber, Agamben…) - Are there nowadays new seasons of both “theological economics” and “economic theology”?
