The third chapter (Economy and Philosophy) addresses philosophy as a way of Christian life via a critique of Foucault’s Hermeneutics of the Subject. It does so by narrating an alternative short history of philosophy as a way of life to Foucault’s that passes from Plato, via Origen to Gregory of Nyssa who was the first to formalize a theory of economic growth.

Keywords:   Michel Foucault, Econmomic Growth, Gregory of Nyssa, Plato, Origen, Christian Subjectivity
