Abstract
In the present review, we explore the problems of market specialists when try to go though anthropological texts, even in tourism. This is the case of Andriotis & Agiomirgianakis who develop a biased conception of hospitality. Not only they consider hospitality only from the economic paradigm, but also are enrooted in a big misunderstanding respecting to the theory of gifts. Certainly, the concept of a non-commercial hospitality rests on shaky foundations. Ranging from a bad definition of used terms towards the needs of imposing speculations without any type of validation, this troublesome text is pour for many reasons. The main goal of this review is precisely to place a hot-debate on the problems pseudo-Scientific studies have. 

Key Words. Hospitality, Theory of Gift, Tourism, Social exchange.
