With a brand new creation by way of the writer, this “erudite and brilliantly readable book” (The Observer, London) astutely dissects the political, fiscal and social origins of Western civilization to bare a tradition cripplingly enslaved to crude notions of rationality and services.
The Western global is stuffed with paradoxes. We speak without end of person freedom, but we’ve by no means been below extra strain to comply. Our enterprise leaders describe themselves as capitalists, but such a lot are company staff and fiscal speculators. We name our governments democracies, but few people perform politics. We whinge approximately invasive executive, but our felony, academic, monetary, social, cultural and legislative platforms are deteriorating.
All those difficulties, John Ralston Saul argues, are mostly the results of our blind religion within the worth of cause. over the last four hundred years, our “rational elites” have became the fashionable West right into a tremendous, incomprehensible, directionless desktop, run via process-minded experts—“Voltaire’s bastards”—whose cult of medical administration is empty of either experience and morality. no matter if in politics, paintings, company, the army, entertainment, technological know-how, finance, academia or journalism, those specialists percentage an identical outlook and techniques. the outcome, Saul keeps, is a civilization of mammoth technological energy whose traditional electorate are more and more excluded from the decision-making approach.
In this wide-ranging anatomy of recent society and its origins—whose “pages explode with perception, kind and highbrow rigor” (Camille Paglia, The Washington Post)—Saul offers a shattering critique of the political, fiscal and cultural establishments of the West.

If, for instance, W had expected an explanation, W might have oriented to A’s acceptance as infelicitous. Such was the case in Garfinkel’s breaching experiments in which the greeting How are you? was oriented to as a question requesting information and not as a greeting. Such deviations from normative frameworks require accounts for why the respondent has deviated. The norm also allows for inferencing if no response follows an action. If a greeting is not followed by a return greeting it is rarely the case that the greeter will just think nothing.
For Sacks, category use falls squarely in the area of members’ competences and members’ social activities: If we’re going to describe Members’ activities, and the way they produce activities and see activities and organize their knowledge about them, then we’re going to have to find out how they go about choosing among the available sets of categories for grasping some event. (Sacks 1992[1964–1965: 41) Some areas of research in CA, therefore, involve the examination of instances of category use, why this category and not some other and the sequential implications of category use (see especially Antaki & Widdicombe 1998 for a series of articles addressing membership categorization).
Actions do not merely describe and norms do not merely ‘cause’ beahaviour) but are constitutive parts of the activities in which they are embedded. For example, let us once again consider Ex. (2:1). W’s wh-interrogative sets up the interactional scene by placing A in a situation of choice. That is, W’s action reflexively constitutes the interaction that both W and A find themselves in by setting up the expectation that A responds to W’s action. A’s response, in turn, reflexively reconstitutes the interaction by orienting to W’s wh-interrogative as an invitation.
