Beyond Utilitarianism. The Gift in Opulent Societies

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Utilitarianism; Gift Economy.

The gift economy is an individual and collective manifestation of non utilitarian behaviour that questions all that is related to self-appropriation. Within the market exchange context, an individual is free from social bonds. The gift changes this perspective. It is an integral and essential part of a debate on our model of development, having made its way into the mind of the "homo oeconomicus".
