Ética y solidaridad: Perspectivas históricas y normativas

Author: Edison Paul Tabra Ochoa 

Series number: Focus No. 38
Publication: 2017

This work assumes the challenge of apprehending an idea as multifaceted as that of solidarity. To do this, in addition to carrying out a complete study of the different views that have been offered of the term, we choose the right strategy to break down its content. The proposal manages to integrate in a single concept the objective approach (as a duty or principle), contractual content, with the subjective vision (as virtue and attitude), human development factor. This is, according to the author, the only way to guarantee the essential goal of solidarity: the common good and the reduction of inequalities in society due to the lack of means of compliance or the tendency to conform.
