Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter presents an overview of the book. In presenting a book on the moral theology of economic issues of a scholastic author such as Luis de Molina who lived, wrote and died more than 400 years ago, there are at least two questions that should be addressed from the beginning: why this author and how his work will be approached. The goal of the book is to present Molina's moral theology on economic matters, at a time when economics and ethics still belonged to the same disciplinary matrix of moral philosophy. The book discerns the pattern according to which bridges between economics and ethics are built. It also takes up matters of business ethics such as the character of the virtuous merchant, and investigates the political implication of how economic justice works out in the political body.

Keywords: business ethics; economics; Luis de Molina
