The present note has an informative purpose. It calls attention to Bernard Lonergan (1904-1984), a prominent 20th century intellectual, well known for his contributions as a theologian, but whose reflections and writings also covered economics. Two volumes of his more than twenty collected works present the main lines of his comprehensive economic vision, including a critical discussion on the prevailing economic ideologies at the eve and inception of WWII, and they show the need not only for a deep change of the objectives of economic policies but also for a deep rethinking of the purpose of economics as a social discipline.
