Part of the Contributions to Economics book series (CE)


The contribution presents the concept of the property in terms of philosophy, law, economics, sociology, politics, and economic psychology. A concept of “hexagon of property” has been developed taking into account all aspects of this complex category. The contribution considers the process when a person acquires a property object and its development taking into account various aspects of the property: philosophical; cognitive, legal, emotional, strong-willed, profitable, political (domineering) and social aspects. The life cycle of the property object is considered from the standpoint of economics, law, sociology, psychology, and politics. The emphasis is on the ownership from the perspective of economic psychology: components of ownership (cognitive, emotional and volitional) and their formation at different stages of the property development, as well as specific subject-object relations related to the notion of “commodity fetishism” are shown. With the help of statistical data, it is justified that property objects are the extension of personality, especially for intellectual property objects.
