Abstract :
In this article, the concept ‘economic spirituality’ is explored as the enactment of transcending evaluative orientations in everyday economic practices. After an introductory note on the reasons for engaging with the spirituality of economic exchanges, the way values and evaluative orientations can operate as transcending perspectives is investigated. As an example of the enactment of these transcending evaluative orientations, a previous study of the relation between spirituality and buying brand products is analyzed. Also, the relation between economic spirituality and two related approaches – ethics and business spirituality – is investigated.
