Tomáš Sedláček: "Economics of Good and Evil", Oxford University Press, 2011
Is economics really value-free or is it also about moral values? Tomáš Sedláček, economist and provocative thinker from Prague, on the "Economics of Good and Evil", for which he garnered the Deutsche Wirtschaftsbuchpreis 2012 (German Business Book Award 2012).
Sedláček examines the roles of work and economics in ancient cultures, religions and myths which continue to influence us today. He analyses the irrational preconceptions which prevail in modern economic thinking. Sedláček's book is a fascinating peregrination through the world of economics – taking us from the epic of Gilgamesh, the Old Testament and Adam Smith to Wall Street and the economic crisis.

This book describes the use of the notion of divine philanthropy from its first appearance in Aeschylos and Plato to the highly polyvalent use of it by John Chrysostom. Each page is marked by meticulous scholarship and great insight, lucidity of thought and expression. Bishop Danilo’s principal methodology in examining Chrysostom is a philological analysis of his works in order to grasp all the semantic shades of the concept of philanthropia throughout his vast literary output. The author overviews the observable development of the concept of philanthropia in a research that encompasses nearly seven centuries of literary sources. Peculiar theological connotations are studied in the uses of divine philanthropia both in the classical development from Aeschylos via Plutarch down to Libanius, Themistius of Byzantium and the Emperor Julian, as well as in the biblical development, especially from Philo and the New Testament through Origen and the Cappadocians to Chrysostom.
