The Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences presents here its reflections on ‘Conceptualization of the Human Person in Social Sciences’. The subject, which was prepared during two years, is exceptional because more methodological and philosophical than those examined on previous occasions and than those intended to be tackled in the proximate future. The centrality of the person in Catholic social doctrine gives a good reason for such an exception: we had indeed, some day, to study the extent to which teachings of the social sciences in their diversity were consistent with Christian anthropology. We cannot claim our reflections on this subject to have been brought to completion. But at least some time seems to be required before we can wisely decide about further investigations in the same direction.
The eleventh Plenary Session of the Academy had been scheduled for early April 2005, but had to be postponed to November of the same year. Because of various reasons a few among the participants who had prepared written contributions were not able to come at that later period. Their contributions were, however, discussed and are here published. We are thankful for them to have accepted such an arrangement. They are: His Eminence Cardinal Angelo Scola, Professor Jon Elster, Academicians Paul Kirchhof and Pedro Morandé Court.
