In the inheritance tax debates of the 1920s the proposals formulated by theItalian philosopher Eugenio Rignano occupied a prominent position. Since then, his contribution has been largely, although not completely, forgotten. This paper reviews the Rignanoâ€™s ideas by focusing upon its origins and upon the reactions to Rignanoâ€™s proposal in the 1920s, both in Italy and elsewhere.
