Abstract

Economics, with its promise of a human life without sacrifice, in late modernity age, is a great way to escape from the contagion of interpersonal relations. Crisis that our market-societies are suffering, are essentially relational crisis. They are originated by the great illusion that the anonymity of market - as well as the hierarchical firm - can produce a good standard of life, without any relational or inrerpersonal risk. This book is a deep analysis inside the modernity age, in order to explain the anthropological and cultural foundations on witch is based our contemporary economics theory.
