The Decisionist Imagination (eBook)
Sovereignty, Social Science And Democracy In The 20th Century
Sobre o livro
In the decades following World War II, the science of decision-making moved from the periphery to the center of transatlantic thought. The Decisionist Imagination explores how decisionism emerged from its origins in prewar political theory to become an object of intense social scientific inquiry in the new intellectual and institutional landscapes of the postwar era. By bringing together scholars from a wide variety of disciplines, this volume illuminates how theories of decision shaped numerous techno-scientific aspects of modern governancehelping to explain, in short, how we arrived at where we are today.
