Resumen

DOMINGUEZ, Alejandro Pérez y Soto; PINILLA, Katherine Flórez  y  CORDERO, José Manuel Carballido. THOMAS HOBBES: THE MODERN ECONOMIST. Prax. filos. [online]. 2017, n.44, pp.221-250. ISSN 0120-4688.

This paper aims to identify the influence of Thomas Hobbes’s work on the modern economic thought, especially within the Marxist, Neoclassic and Keynesian schools. Instead of just focusing on philosophy or law, this philosopher’s theoretical work displays a methodological, anthropological and institutional purpose that has profound significance, and which offers an in-depth look at commercial society, the role of the individual, the marketplace, and the State as basic institutions of his time. Hobbes is the inspiration for a tradition that assumes the State and society as a monolithic unit. Attempts by a large part of the tradition of economic thought can be understood, according to his legacy, as ways of technically justifying the central planning of individuals’ thinking and the control of their social actions.

Palabras clave : Thomas Hobbes; economic thought; social engineering; Marxism; seized information..
