The shape of economics depends on the concept of human nature. Those concepts can be understood as a set of assumptions made about the individual (especially his/her behavior, motives, meaning), his/her social world, and the worldview. Such a concept of human nature builds the basis of thinking about the economics and about its fundamental elements. The goal of the paper is to present the impact of the assumptions about the concept of a man on one of such fundaments - the goal of economics, on the example of humanistic economics. Humanistic economics is here understood widely, including approaches to economics developed within particular world religions as especially: Buddhist, Islam and Christian. The method applied to this research is, among others, a content analysis of the most important texts created within widely understood humanistic economics and directions of economics motivated by world religions.
