Thorstein Veblen and his America by Joseph Dorfman( Book )

87 editions published between 1934 and 1972 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professor Dorfman gives a thorough evaluation of how Thorstein Veblen became the Thorstein Veblen we know today. Dorfman shows how Dr. Veblen was exposed to the various superficial and spurious philosophical trends running through his years at Carlton College Academy. It was not Kant and Kierkegaard that introduced Veblen to the contemporary view of humanity, but charlatan religious and political amateurs that ruled the roost and set the philosophical tone at Carlton. This came in addition to the arrogance of the mostly New England middle class he met in his forming years. Whereas "The Theory of the Leisure Class" (1899) is a cumbersome read with an obvious tendency to latinate English, Professor Dorfman's opus "Thorstein Veblen and his America" (1934) is extensive, but an easier read

The instinct of workmanship, and the state of the industrial arts by Thorstein Veblen( Book )

10 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Instinct of Workmanship and the State of the Industrial Arts, originally issued in 1914, is described by Murray Murphey as his "most important work." In this volume that the theoretical foundations are put forth on full display. Veblen's juxtaposition of the instinctive values of community welfare in contrast to the pecuniary values of commercial exchange was the basis of his later, more famous works. The book makes plain Veblen's basic dichotomy between technological institutions for making goods and the pecuniary institutions for making money. Veblen's book is taken up with the casual processes in the history of culture centered on human instincts and habits. For him, a change in the natural or social conditions produces effects only by changing the behavior of people. The whole panoply of habits, instincts, and motives, points to a theory of social and cultural change which substantially differs from the pragmatic tradition that swept America in the early decades of this century. Veblen makes so many unique contributions and insights that his work outlives the limitations of its theoretical shell. As is the case for most Veblen's works, footnotes and references are sparse, no index is provided, and the reader is left to fill in the missing paraphernalia the way one does with a novel. Indeed, the reader is swept along Veblen's captivating rhetoric in seven brilliant chapters moving from the instincts in primitive technology, to the current state of industrial arts, to the examination of predatory culture invited to the civilizational table by the competitive system, and finally into a contrast of handicrafts and machine industry. Veblen offers a dramaturgy and a morality of the industrial order of his time: much has changed, but a great deal remains the same and is easily identifiable by the discerning reader. In this passage through text and time, Murphey is the perfect guide, displaying a keen knowledge of philosophy, psychology"--Provided by publisher
