Abstract It is common among scholars who study Italian civil tradition the idea that French personalism contains the anthropological basis in which best fits the civil economy. However, even though this idea is often repeated, it is not easy to find papers who demonstrate it clearly. Even more, it is not easy to find papers that contain—in a rigorous and systematic way—the anthropological basis for all subsequent developments of the civil economy. In this paper we take into account the works of one of the most important French personalists: Jacques Maritain. Thus, we provide a detailed description of Maritain’s social anthropology, and make a close comparison between his proposals and those of the civil tradition, to conclude that the work of this philosopher can be offered as a strong anthropological basis for this tradition. © 2015, Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
