This article lays the foundations of a paradigm to feed a dialogue on what might amount to a socio-economic theory. The key building stones concern the actors utility, rationality and relationship to others. It draws on the theory laid out in The Moral Dimension: Towards a New Economics (Etzioni, 1988, New York, Free Press).

Keywords: socio-economics, neoclassical economics, self-interest and values
