9780226556635: The Bourgeois Virtues: Ethics for an Age of Commerce
Review:

"An economist and historian of considerable distinction." - New York Times Book Review "A highly regarded public figure [and] a world-famous conservative economist." - Publishers Weekly "A top-notch neo-classical economist.... Iconoclastic and polymathic." - Chronicle of Higher Education "[McCloskey is] in the rare position of being a free-market enthusiast... admired by many left-leaning English professors." - Reason"

From the Publisher:

For a century and a half, the artists and intellectuals of Europe have scorned the bourgeoisie. And for a millennium and a half, the philosophers and theologians of Europe have scorned the marketplace. The bourgeois life, capitalism, Mencken's "booboisie" and David Brooks's "bobos" - all have been, and still are, framed as being responsible for everything from financial to moral poverty, world wars, and spiritual desuetude. Countering these centuries of assumptions and unexamined thinking is Deirdre McCloskey's "The Bourgeois Virtues", a magnum opus that offers a radical view: capitalism is good for us. McCloskey's sweeping, charming, and even humorous survey of ethical thought and economic realities - from Plato to Barbara Ehrenreich - overturns every assumption we have about being bourgeois. Can you be virtuous and bourgeois? Do markets improve ethics? Has capitalism made us better as well as richer? Yes, yes, and yes, argues McCloskey, who takes on centuries of capitalism's critics with her erudition and sheer scope of knowledge. Applying a new tradition of "virtue ethics" to our lives in modern economics, she affirms American capitalism without ignoring its faults and celebrates the bourgeois lives we actually live, without supposing that they must be lives without ethical foundations. High Noon, Kant, Bill Murray, the modern novel, van Gogh, and of course economics and the economy all come into play in a book that can only be described as a monumental project and a life's work. "The Bourgeois Virtues" is nothing less than a dazzling reinterpretation of Western intellectual history, a dead-serious reply to the critics of capitalism - and a surprising page-turner.

Descripción The University of Chicago Press, 2006. Estado de conservación: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Preface Acknowledgments Apology: A Brief for the Bourgeois Virtues I. Exordium: The Good Bourgeois II. Narratio: How Ethics Fell III. Probatio A: Modern Capitalism Makes Us Richer IV. Probatio B: And Lets Us Live Longer V. Probatio C: And Improves Our Ethics VI. Refutatio: Anticapitalism Is Bad for Us VII. Peroratio Appeal Please be patient about the argument, for your own good.1. The Very Word "Virtue" "Virtue ethics" says that acting well is not a matter of finding the most general ethical rule but of finding stories for a good character. Can a bourgeois person be virtuous?2. The Very Word "Bourgeois" "Bourgeois" is used here for the middle class: haute, petite, and the angry clerisy sprung from it, too.3. On Not Being Spooked by the Word "Bourgeois" "Bourgeois" need not be a term of contempt.Part 1 - The Christian and Feminine Virtues: Love4. The First Virtue: Love Profane and Sacred Ethics comes from stories. Love stories, for example.5. Love and the Transcendent Love is for peop but it is love for Art, Science, Nature, God, too.6. Sweet Love vs. Interest Loving is not the same thing as "maximizing utility."7. Bourgeois Economists against Love Some economists mistake this. Adam Smith did not.8. Love and the Bourgeoisie Capitalism requires love.Solidarity Regained The market has not eroded love.Part 2 - The Christian and Feminine Virtues: Faith and Hope10. Faith as Identity The other "theological virtues," besides love, also figure in any human society, even a commercial one. For instance, Faithwho you are.11. Hope and Its Banishment Hope in a commercial society is mobility. Its transcendent version makes the clerisy uneasy.12. Against the Sacred Religious Hope and faith were disdained by some, 17 to the present. But other faiths and hopes expanded.13. Van Gogh and the Transcendent Profane Thus, for example, Vincent van Gogh, who was hopeful, not crazy.14. Humility and Truth Such "theological" virtuesfaith, hope, and loveshow themselves even in some economists, and in any good scientist.15. Economic Theology Economics needs a theology. In fact, it already is a theologyPart 3 - The Pagan and Masculine Virtues: Courage, with Temperance16. The Good of Courage Courage is modeled by Achilles or Odysseus. The stories are myths, in the double sense: culturally important tales; and false in detail and sometimes in spirit. A bourgeois army is a contradiction, as at Srebrenica.17. Anachronistic Courage in the Bourgeoisie Yet bourgeois men have adopted the mythical histories of knights and cowboys as their definition of masculinity.18. Taciturn Courage against the "Feminine" For example, they have taken taciturnity as a marker of masculinity, against the talk-talk of the marketplace. Male bourgeois writers in America came to need a way of distinguishing themselves from women. Therefore they adopted a nostalgia for the silent, violent hero.19. Bourgeois vs. Q.
