- International seminar "The Charismatic Principle in Economic and Civil Life: History, Theory and Good Practice"
- Loppiano (Florence), Sophia University, Italy
- Topics of interest include:- theories on charisms in civil life: what is a charism? How does it work in society? How might one distinguish a charism from a talent? Are charisms given only to ??special?? people, are are they also present in ordinary people? Is a charism necessarily associated with religion, or, is it, as we submit, possible to imagine charisms at work within a secular perspective? Are there parallels between von Balthasar??s idea of the charismatic principle and Max Weber??s theory of charismatic power?- historical perspectives of the role of charisms in economic and social history: how have the charisms of noted personalities (e.g., Benedict, Francis, Gandhi) changed economic and social history? What insights might be drawn from ??civil charisms?? such as the cooperative movement, non-profit organizations, social economy, values-based organizations, etc.?- empirical cases of charisms in economic, civil and social life, both historical and current.[gem?_?? den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]
