Ethics and Economics: conceptual Backgrounds of Division and Unity ABSTRACT: Considering the recent financial capitalism development and the ethical ‘collapse’ in this specific sphere of economic action as the new figure of classical contest between ethics and economics, this paper is intended to be a record of the sources both of ethics and economics division and unity in the contemporary conceptual horizons. In particular, the aim is to show how difficult is for our dominant views in ethics, coming out from a long way of antithesis against the instrumental rational pattern of economic action, to focus attention on the real unitarian model the aristotelean one that embeds economics inside ethics. By this, also Amartya Sen proposal of an aristotelean connection between ethics and economics is analysed and criticized because of his subterranean link with the divisionistic contemporary positions.)" />
