"This passionate book is a powerful conceptual, empirical, and normative critique of Rational Choice theory by a former practitioner."
-David A. Welch, University of Toronto, Ethics and International Affairs
"This is an excellent and enjoyable book...As a critique of welfarism, market idealism, and (especially) psychological egoism, Taylor's Rationality and the Ideology of Disconnection is valuable and rewarding. I strongly recommend it on these terms."
-Frank Lovett, The Review of Politics
Rationality and the Ideology of Disconnection is a provocative polemic against the philosophical psychology that underpins Rational Choice theories and the economic way of thinking - a dehumanizing ideology that in recent years has been colonizing our approach to social, political, and environmental issues.See all Product Description
