Relationship Between Economics and Ethics

Marie Bohatá

Politická ekonomie, 2021, vol. 2021, issue 6, 708-721

Abstract: The aim of the paper is twofold: to point out important milestones in the development of the relationship between ethics and economics, and to present some examples of approaches aiming at re-integrating disciplines often perceived as antagonistic. There is, however, a wide variety of concepts and views trying to bring both disciplines closer, and the paper gives the reader a taste of different points of view, especially those less known and not mirrored in the Czech economic literature. The author is of the view that these concepts could inspire reflections on and efforts to tackle economic and societal problems that are becoming increasingly complex and interdisciplinary. Despite many calls to develop holistic approaches to knowledge acquisition and dealing with complexity in the contemporary world, we are witnessing continuous specialization of individual scientific disciplines, including the detachment of economics and ethics.
