Growing up in Africa: Age and Pro-Social Attitudes in Primary Schoolchildren in Goma (DRC) digital
Year: 2017
While an extensive literature based on analysis conducted in developed countries shows that primary school children develop prosocial attitudes as they grow older, with school acting as the main driver of the socialisation process, there is little evidence of what may happen in very different socio-cultural and economic context...

Life’s About Change. How Relations Transform Individual Attitudes, Choices and Behaviors digital
Year: 2017
Searching for escapes from the ‘‘algorithmic cage’’ of homo economicus, experimental and behavioral economics appear as a step towards the ‘‘whole breadth of reason’’ highlighting the role of interpersonal relation in human decisions and actions. We explore how individual choices, attitudes and traits change over a congruous period of time, due to exposure to an intense relational experience within a caring community...

‘‘The whole breadth of reason’’: a step towards rethinking economics and rationality digital
Year: 2012
The paper, which acts as an introduction to the Special Issue devoted to ‘‘The whole breadth of reason’’, addresses the topic of economic rationality and discusses its strengths and weaknesses within an interdisciplinary perspective highlighting the relational dimension of agents and actions. Exiting the cage of homo economicus, we critically discuss both behavioral economics and neuro economics approaches, showing that they are not immune from limitations due to both dubious technical procedures and fragile epistemological foundations. When taking rational decision under structural uncertainty, human beings rely on default practices which are inherently developed and dynamically adapted within a community of concrete individuals; they also tend to provide persuasive justification of one’s belief to other people. The paper concludes that rationality is a powerful tool, within a relational, dynamic, realistic and ‘whole’ anthropology.

Quale programma per lo sviluppo? Una nota a partire dalla dottrina sociale della Chiesa digital
Year: 2006
Catholic Social Teaching expresses the paradoxical claim that the Church «offers her first contribution to the solution of the urgent problem of development when she proclaims the truth about Christ, about herself and about man» (SRS, 41). This note discusses its implication for development programming, with reference to the Millennium Development Goals and to some consensus principles: quantitative targets, ownership, comprehensiveness and empowerment. Applying the two core principles of CST, namely personal dignity of each human being and ontological unity of the human family, the paper poses some questions about how to conceive development programming and how to effectively achieve the desired development outcome, caring about the process of getting there. This points to the need of providing not just for innovative instruments for development financing but also for institutional conditions that facilitate personal initiative and commitment to practical and concrete love for every human being.
