This book analyzes both the biographical and theoretical relations between the Freiburg school of economics and Höffner's thinking as it represents Christian social teaching. The focus lies on the question of how it is possible to develop a social theory which is economically sound, ethically responsible and suitable for application in our modern global society.

The focus lies on the question of how it is possible to develop a social theory which is economically sound, ethically responsible and suitable for application in our modern global society.
