Religion and the rise of capitalism; a historical study by R. H Tawney( Book )

417 editions published between 1922 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 4,151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The acquisitive society by R. H Tawney( Book )

144 editions published between 1920 and 2016 in English and Spanish and held by 1,990 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Casi un siglo después de su primera edición La sociedad adquisitiva (1920), en su día el único libro de un autor vivo que fue incluido por la Universidad de Chicago en la lista de los setenta y dos libros más influyentes de la civilización occidental, sigue siendo un clásico de la teoría tradicional de los derechos de propiedad. En él se muestra cómo, si bien tenía su razón de ser en las condiciones de sencillez económica en que se formuló, dicha teoría ha acabado siendo la causa principal de las deficiencias morales del capitalismo, que incita al poder económico eximiendo a quienes lo poseen de cualquier responsabilidad social, y que propició la desigualdad, el derroche y la lucha de clases a los que se vio abocado el siglo XX. Como alternativa a esta separación de los derechos de propiedad de la obligación de proporcionar un servicio útil a la sociedad, su autor sugiere que tanto éstos como la organización industrial deberían basarse en el principio de función; esto es, que las remuneraciones y los honores deberían estar vinculados al cumplimiento de funciones y servicios con un valor social y que la industria debería funcionar como cualquier otra profesión, con los códigos ontológicos y las limitaciones al beneficio correspondientes. Este libro merecería el honor de ser considerado un clásico aunque sólo fuera por haber descubierto el vasto continente temático del carácter injusto y absurdo de la escala de valores vigente en la sociedad industrial. Pero tiene, además, el mérito de haberse adelantado a los tiempos, con la mirada nítida del pionero que observa nuevos fenómenos, y nos invita a observar nuestro presente con el mismo rigor y la misma esperanza

History and society : essays by R. H Tawney( Book )

21 editions published between 1978 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

R. H. Tawney believed that the subject of economic history raises questions which touch the fundamental concerns of all thinking people. By setting economic development firmly within the framework of cultural and political life, he provided an alternative to the recent fragmentation of economic history into a number of increasingly technical specialisms. For this reason, his work has appealed to Marxists and non-Marxists alike, and still remains controversial.First published in 1978, the introduction by J. M. Winter to this edition
