Why do many problems throughout the world seem to be getting worse? Saving Society argues that a dramatic change in our mode of thinking is required. The authors show how many of our fundamental assumptions lead to an overly bureaucratic approach, blocking solutions to many of our problems. They contrast our present emotional repression and conforming behaviour with a more liberated form of perception, thought and emotional expression, which could allow us to break out of these bureaucratic routines. Saving Society shows how this alternative approach might lay the basis for more effective and democratic institutions.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The authors bring attention to the epistemological barriers that inhibit real progress in resolving society's most pressing problems. Phillips and Christner are most persuasive when they reflect on the shortcomings of the social sciences themselves. ... The authors demonstrate a realistic understanding of how progressive societal change can and does occur. In doing so, the authors are careful to ensure that their analysis renders actionable insights that can realistically form a basis for progressive social change. This type of realism is what the sociological imagination is all about. Mills would be pleased. Highly recommended."
