Abstract: Der Beitrag thematisiert das Verhaeltnis von Ethik und oekonomik aus einer Perspektive solidarischen Handelns. Solidaritaet wird dabei verstanden als eine Integration von Individuen in die Gesellschaft unter Beruecksichtigung grundlegender moralischer Anforderungen. Damit weist dieser Ansatz deutlich ueber eine rein oekonomische Ethik hinaus. Abschliessend wird der ethische Stellenwert individueller Rechte in kooperativen Interaktionszusammenhaengen eroertert. (This paper analyzes the interrelation between ethics and economics using the principle of solidarity as a normative guideline. Solidarity is conceptualized as the comprehensive social inclusion of individuals in society which takes fundamental moral demands into account. Thus, the ethical content of this approach exceeds the normative limitations of a mere economic approach to ethics. In a first step, the principle of solidarity is being developed by applying it to different modes of social interaction. In a second step, the outcomes of competing models of cooperative bargaining are being outlined. Finally, the normative impact of individual rights in a framework of cooperative interactions is being analyzed.)
