Sassower weaves together strands of Marxism, Popperianism and postmodernism to offer an original, practical and hopeful approach to how we-citizens, thinkers and students-might enact collective prosperity. Such prosperity comes from our desire to improve the human condition. With singular clarity and directness, Sassower argues convincingly for new commitments -philosophical, social and political-in service to our collective flourishing. -- James Collier, Associate Professor of Science and Technology, Virginia Tech
Raphael Sassower systematically analyzes the modern economic system: not just the systems that provide the mechanic function of capitalism but the very metric by which success and failure are measured. By interrogating the notion of "Prosperity" Sassower identifies and begins to fill a gap that emerges from employing established units of measure in an evolving economic context. -- Michael Sawyer, Assistant Professor, Colorado College
