The relationship between “guilt” and “responsibility” shows us the nature of the way social life is structured. The three dimensions of guilt as money, gift and sin are etymologically intertwined. Exchange, debt and money are all elements used solely for human purposes: money as credit is a social convention. Any individual or nation was born with a social debt that they needed to pay back to maintain their existence. That human beings have the ability to corrupt what they meet in turn brings forth the question of “sin” which is embedded in all being. The Bourdieusian understanding of “gifts” as the glue that connects the social dots can also be found in studies of gift giving in organizations.
