Summer reading and writing on Anthropology and History of Philosophy.

According to many historians of economic theory, the ancient Greeks had no strong and consistent thought on economics for lack of a scientific approach to economics in the modern sense of the word science. But this does not mean they did not have a valuable approach to economic phenomena and institutions. Historians' assertions to the contrary derive from the fact that they fail to seriously take into account that ancient Greek thought on economics rested on a consistent set of philosophical concepts and notions. Presenting an alternative view based on a delimited corpus of texts by ancient Greek philosophers or ancient Greek writers influenced by philosophers, my project is to evidence the existence and value of Greek philosophical theories on trade, business and money. This project aims at completing the first part of a broader project on ancient philosophical approaches to economics. This first part was dealing with Greek philosophical approaches to economics within the oikos.
