Authors

Abstract

Eco-social activity is indispensable for human life. Hence the respective theoretical corpus,  economics, needs a totally secure foundation — which traditional methodology lacks because  of its widely unnoticed categorial self-limitation that must thus be overcome. A thorough  analysis of this situation allows the systematic development of an uncompromising integrative  approach that offers the necessary features. In particular, one of its theoretical results  concerning value is outlined: a law of nature in economics that is thus constitutive for  absolutely any form of economy and relevant for any economic valuation.
