Values are the core of every society; they determine its function, effectiveness and development, as well as the life-satisfaction and success of its citizens. But the meaning of the concept is far from clear. The aim of this book is to discuss and specify the idea of social values from the perspective of two disciplines of the social sciences: sociology and economics. In some areas congruent, in others disparate, both approaches are helpful in understanding the current events and processes in social and economic domains.
