The Idea of Cooperativism from a Social-Theoretical Perspective with Particular Emphasis on Catholic Social Teaching
In the paper I elucidate the basic traits of cooperativism from the perspective of the social sciences. Its historical roots, especially in the thought of Robert Owen and V. I. Lenin, are described, together with the mainstream cooperative model presented by the UN and the European Union. Forasmuch as teaching on the role of cooperative entrepreneurship in the contemporary capitalist economy is an integral part of Catholic Social Doctrine, particular emphasis is placed on the teaching of the popes on cooperatives.
