Summary "This thought-provoking monograph connects the idea of civil economy in Italian economic thought to the work of Thomas Aquinas. Its main thesis is that there is an alternative spirit of capitalism, with Catholic origins, and which has been carried through to the modern day via the Neapolitan School. It also shows how his treatment of some economic topics can illuminate current discussions about civil economy. Thomas Aquinas and Civil Economy will be of interest to advanced students and researchers in the history of economic thought, economic philosophy, Christian ethics and moral theology"-- Provided by publisher
