MissionThe School of Advanced Studies Society Economy Theology (ASSET), created within the Studium Generale Marcianum of the Patriachate of Venice, aims to be an asset for the comprehension of the plural society. ASSET is an academic and cultural proposal responding to a twofold urgency: on one side the necessity for the social sciences to take account, in a complex post-modern society, of all the dimensions of human experience and human need, avoiding any a priori exclusion of interpretative hypotheses, even those deriving from the religious traditions; on the other side the need for both theology and the social doctrine of the Church to become part of the public debate and to contribute to the common good, confronting topics, paradigms and methodologies typical of diverse disciplines.
