      Sir James Steuart 81 3. The aftermath of the Great Depression had undone this point. Reflections on an Episode in Intellectual History Where the Montesquieu-Steuart Vision Went Wrong The Promise of an Interest-Governed World versus the Protestant Ethic Contemporary Passions and interests book Afterword by Jeremy Adelman Notes Show More Editorial Reviews "Hirschman's volume stands as a principal contribution to the growing literature that is beginning to reshape our understanding of the legitimating beliefs undergirding the rise of the modern market economy. In situations like this, political allegiances tend to get dissolved thus eventually re-assemble around organisations and groups that escape any clear-cut image of traditional political organisations. Contents 1 Passions, interests and the need to survive. To portray this lengthy ideological change as an endogenous process, Hirschman draws on the writings of a large number of thinkers, including Montesquieu, Sir James Steuart, and Adam Smith.

      However, and this is the key point of Hirschman, it is not so clear whether this is really true. View Citation summary In this volume, Albert Hirschman reconstructs the intellectual climate of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries to illuminate the intricate ideological transformation that occurred, wherein the pursuit of material interests--so long condemned as the Passions and interests book sin of avarice--was assigned the role of containing the unruly and destructive passions of man. But through that strange alchemy that Adam Smith would eventually call the invisible hand of the market, these forces actually could serve the common good. Hirschman review political arguments for capitalism before its triumph, while we are in a time where capitalism is clearly in crisis. Most of us have had occasion to learn as students and as adults, over and over, that you cannot just decide to be interested in something, even if it would do you some personal or professional good. Hirschman here offers a new interpretation for the rise of capitalism, one that emphasizes the continuities between old and new, in contrast to the assumption of a sharp break that is a common feature of both Marxian and Weberian thinking.

      Part of this process intersects with the broader development of commerce, spurred onwards and made necessary by the conquest of the New World and other colonizations alongside it, with the faraway markets these adventures opened Passions and interests book. The near future will show how the varieties of capitalism can cope with stress: Anglo-Saxon capitalism in the US and UK, the soziale Marktwirtschaft in Germany and Scandinavian countries, the Japanese economy and state-led capitalism in China. His arguments for the prioritization of intellectual history over histories of events are compelling. How come you can go into a room full of children, 3 or 4 or 5 years old, and talk to them about dinosaurs, and most of them will be somewhat interested — but one or two will be truly grabbed, truly converted, truly obsessed? The focus here then, was not on the material impacts of commerce, but the changes it would effect in the behavior of rulers. And when something interests a small child, all bets are off in terms of memory and vocabulary.
