The chapter explores ethical economic relationships further and the ontological possibilities they generate. In this chapter I turn to Karl Marx’s work on species being in which he uses the term dignity to refer to the kind of humanity realised in socially just economic forms.

Keywords:   economic ethics, ontology, Karl Marx, species being, dignity, economic justice, embodiment, earth others
