In the contemporary world, pervaded by an ambivalent globalization process, we note that a need has arisen for a code of ethics in the financial, political and in the social spheres in general. In this context the theory of social choice ofAmartye Kumar Sen, the Indian economist, philosopher and winner of the Nobel prize for his personal contribution in the field of economy, represents an important factor in the realization of social goals and also plays a key role in the formation of a sound sociopolitical order. With personal preferences in mind and by utilizing a broad data base, Sen complements his theory with ideas on justice and freedom. Thus he creates a very interesting model which paves the way for a wholesome development of society. Finally, Sen's thought comes close to Christian social ethics and the social teachings of the Church, but also to some Hindu as well as Buddhist tenets. The author of this article supplies basic biographical data on Amartye Kumar Sen and introduces his most renowned works. Also, he explains the influence of Condorceta, Smith and Tagore who, in his opinion, played a crucial role in the formation Sen's thought.
