Onto-Theologie der Gabe und das genossenschaftliche Formprinzip
The study is a reconstruction of the research tradition about gift (donation) and reciprocity. The results are going beyond utilitarism in economics and sociology. Important is the high relevance of this anthropology of gift for the understanding of modern societies. The modern economics of cooperatives and similar patterns of social networks are to be understood from such perspectives about gift and reciprocity. With references to theological contributions the study is explaining the relations to fundamental ontology and philosophical anthropology.
