Abstract: Using the work of Karl Polanyi as its axis, this study attempts to sketch a criticism of economicism and of the society that produces it, a society launched on a historical cultural path that may well be understood as a gradual economic totalization of human life. That is the critical path which will be posed here, if only in an embryonic manner.
Translated abstract: En este trabajo, y utilizando como eje la obra de Karl Polanyi, se intenta esbozar una crítica del economicismo y de la sociedad que lo produce, esa sociedad embarcada en un devenir histórico-cultural que bien puede comprenderse como una paulatina totalización económica de la vida humana. Ese es el recorrido crítico que aquí se quiere plantear, siquiera de manera embrionaria.
