Theology and Economic Ethics

This chapter sketches Arthur Rich’s life and work, and situates his thought contextually. It indicates some of the lines of the development of Rich’s thought, up to the publication of the two volumes of Wirtschaftsethik. It then presents lineaments of Rich’s theological method as set out in Wirtschaftsethik, such as Rich’s understanding of what he calls ‘the basic ethical question’, the general human moral experience, his approach to Scripture, and his adoption of aspects of the thought of Max Weber and John Rawls. This chapter also notes ways in which Rich’s method is representative of other contributions to theological economic ethics, in order to suggest ways in which our reading of Rich has implications for wider trends in theological ethics. The chapter concludes with a brief survey of Rich’s conclusions.

Keywords:   Arthur Rich, economic ethics, Wirtschaftsethik, scripture, theological ethics, moral experience, Max Weber, John Rawls
