Economy Before Christ

(p.1) Introduction
The Origins of Neoliberalism

Dotan Leshem

Columbia University Press

The Introduction (Economy Before Christ) complements and brings into dialogue Hannah Arendt’s and Michel Foucault’s critical inquiries into the genealogy of the modern human condition and thereby opposes Giorgio Agamben’s Homo Sacer series that also aims at bringing the two together. Setting the stage for a discussion of oikonomia in the Christianity of late antiquity, the introduction first recounts the history of oikonomia and of its relation to politics, philosophy, and the market in Pre-Christian Greek-Speaking antiquity.

Keywords:   Hannah Arendt, Michel Foucault, Giorgio Agamben, Ancient Economy, Ancient Philosophy, Ancient Rhetoric, Hermagoras of Temnos
