Pathos and Politics

Pathos and Politics

(p.92) Chapter Five Pathos and Politics
Philip Selznick
Stanford University Press

This chapter focuses on how two critics—Alvin Gouldner and Sheldon Wolin—engaged with enduring aspects of Selznick's thought and ways of thought. Gouldner attacked what he took to be the unjustifiedly pessimistic character of Selznick's work; Wolin, however, attacked what he saw as its systematic decentering and miscasting of the character of politics. Each believed these defects were exemplary, symptomatic of pervasive errors in contemporary thought, of which Selznick was a negative paradigm.

Keywords:   Philip Selznick, Alvin Gouldner, Sheldon Wolin, critics
