Rationalism and Humanism - Delivered at Conway Hall, Red Lion Square, W.C.1 on October 18, 1933 - With an Excerpt from The Economic Philosophies, 1941 (Paperback)
"Rationalism and Humanism" contains a famous lecture given by J. A. Hobson at Conway Hall, London in 1933. A fascinating analysis of rational humanism with reference to the state of post-WWI democracy not to be missed by those with an interest in social ethics and political science. This classic work is being republished now in a new edition complete with an essay on 'The Economic Philosophy of J. A. Hobson' by Indian writer and political scientist Ratish Mohan Agrawala. John Atkinson Hobson (1858-1940) was an English social scientist and economist most famous for his writing on imperialism-which notably influenced Vladimir Lenin-as well as his theory of underconsumption. His early work also questioned the classical theory of rent and predicted the Neoclassical ""marginal productivity"" theory of distribution. Other notable works by this author include: "Roads To Freedom And Slavery", "The Hindu-Muslim Riots Their Causes And Cures", and "The Economic Philosophies".
