Abstract

The object of this paper is a reflection on the significance of some of the last writings and speeches of the late professor Claudio Napoleoni (1924-1988). He was not only a well known theoretical economist and historian of economic thought but also a competent philosophical anthropologist and an important Italian left wing politician (an influential member of the Italian Parliament), who aimed at reconciling his “primitive” Christian faith with a critical and revisionist kind of marxism. The author of this paper discusses Napoleoni‟s peculiar vision of the place of man in the world, submits a new interpretation of his last thoughts on the human fight for liberation from the pervasive dominance of capital, on the founding of the laicization of politics and on other important topics, and points out the enduring validity of his truly remarkable analysis of the main tendances of the capitalist system in the post-industrial era.
