The authors discuss the Sombartian analysis of capitalism from a bioeconomic perspective, paying attention to the relationship between people’s lives and economy. The paper focuses on the influence of individual behaviors and values on the genesis and the stabilization of capitalism. The Sombartian analysis is discussed stressing the point that it offers interesting insights to understand the relationship between economy and the everyday life of the people: the spirit of capitalism, luxury and religious beliefs are examples of cultural phenomena from which economy cannot be separated. The thesis of the authors is that the Sombartian analysis, through a sociological interpretation of history able to avoid any psychological reductionism, puts life at the center of economy.
