Leonardo Polo’s expression “success is always premature” is considered from four consecutive approaches.
From a historical point of view, it identifies a modern and contemporary problem: the overvaluation of productivity. Anthropologically considered, such problem is the rejection of filial condition. A strictly practical point of view, rather than overvalue human action, shows it as fragmentary and fallible. As a result, human being often pays attention to minor repairs, that is, intermediate ends, that are inexhaustible, and in so doing human being misses the ultimate ends.
From the Christian philosophical approach together with Polo’s games theory, the inexhaustible intermediate ends can be subordinated to an inexhaustible future, transforming the inexhaustibility of the intermediate ends in the possibility of a social positive-sum game.
