The Late-Scholastic and Austrian Link to Modern Catholic Economic Thought

Articles

Abstract

My intention is to sketch a picture of an intellectual tradition tracing from scholasticism (and its influences in Christian and ancient traditions), to the economic thought of the Late Scholastics, to the recovery of this tradition in late-nineteenthcentury Vienna (in the writings of Carl Menger and Franz Brentano), and finally to its reintegration into modern Catholic social teaching under the guidance of Karol Wojtyla’s papacy. In particular, I want to pay special attention to the proto-personalist aspects present within the work of the Late Scholastics. This proto-personalism also provides a theoretical bridge with the work of the later Austrian School.
