POLS233 Special Topic:

Examining thinkers from Plato, Marx, and Mill to the present to trace the transition from giving political expression to the good life toward satisfying demands. Developments analysed are the degeneration of moral philosophy and the rise of the market economy. Tawney is singled out as a thinker who saw the need to tame the market rather than abolish it. The moral: thinkers who cannot argue economics cannot face the greatest challenge of the modern world, namely, how to humanise market capitalism.
