C ritical Essay FRED ERISMAN
The Technological Utopias of Thorstein Veblen and Nevil Shute Technology, like politics, makes for strange bedfellows. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the congruence of the ideas of the NorwegianAmerican economist, Thorstein Veblen (1857-1929), and the British popular novelist, Nevil Shute (1899-1960). Their lives overlap by a scant third of a century, and seem, on the surface, antagonistic; Veblen devotes his academic career to outspoken criticisms of business and commerce, while Shute, by training an aeronautical engineer, has considerable success as an entrepreneurial businessman in the aircraft industry before turning to fulltime authorship.' Nevertheless, the social ideas of the one resonate in the fiction of the other, for both are working within the long-standing tradition of the technological utopia, and their regard for the potential inherent in the proper exercise of technology provides the basis for a provocative debate over how a humane society might function effectively within a technological world.' At the heart of Veblen's socio-economic thought are three broad concepts: the instinct of idle curiosity, the instinct of workmanship, and the parental bent. Emerging in The Theory of the Leisure Class (1899) and The Theory of Business Enterprise (1904), developed explicitly in The Instinct of Workmanship (1914) and The Higher Learning in America (1918), and broadly expanded in The Engineers and the Price System (1921), these concepts at last form the foundation of Veblen's technocratic utopia, a society in which their application by enlightened engineers and others of the technologically adept will overcome the corruption that permeates the world of capital and commerce. Freed of its corruption, society will then proceed to a more harmonious, albeit relentlessly secular, relationship with technology and the world.

Famous Quotes By: Veblen, Thorstein 1857-1929 American Social Scientist
In order to stand well in the eyes of the community, it is necessary to come up to a certain, somewhat indefinite, conventional standard of wealth.
Veblen, Thorstein

It is always sound business to take any obtainable net gain, at any cost and at any risk to the rest of the community.
Veblen, Thorstein

The basis on which good repute in any highly organized industrial community ultimately rests is pecuniary strength; and the means of showing pecuniary strength, and so of gaining or retaining a good name, are leisure and a conspicuous consumption of goods
Veblen, Thorstein

THORSTEIN VEBLEN AND THE AMERICAN WAY OF LIFE Louis Patsouras Economist, iconoclast, social critic, and moral judge
of the American way of life: 'the best critic of America that America has produced.' Thorstein Veblen (1857-1929) was an unrelenting critic of the American way of life. In his first and best-known work, The Theory of the Leisure Class, Veblen defined the social attitudes and values that condoned the misuse of wealth and the variety of ways in which the resources of modern society were wasted. Though most famous for the term "conspicuous consumption"a pattern of consumerism that more than survives to the present dayhe also attacked other American institutions and traditions, but his ideas on society were often dismissed because of his reputation as an eccentric. Unsuccessful in his university career and his two marriages, and in his private life described as strange, bitter, and detached, in his books, Veblen shone. Thorstein Veblen remains a baffling figure in American intellectual history, and this important work, undertaken by Louis Patsouras, attempts both to unravel the riddles that surround his reputation and to assess his varied and important contributions to modern social theory.

Emile Durkheim and Thorstein Veblen on epistemology, cultural lag and social order
Rick Tilman Deakin University Despite their importance to the history of economics and social theory, social scientists and historians pay little heed to the structural similarities as well as the important divergences in the work of Frenchman Emile Durkheim (1858-1917) and American Thorstein Veblen (1857-1929). Consequently, this article places Durkheim and Veblen in their social and historical context, and then (1) their epistemologies are related to their use of cultural lag to explain the persistence of atavistic continuities in the existing order, (2) their theories of social bonding

Information on Authors
Thorstein Bunde Veblen (1857-1929)
American economist and social critic. Professor of Political Economy at the University of Chicago from 1892-1906, and editor of 'The Journal of Political Economy' from 1896-1905. He also taught at Stanford (1906-09), University of Missouri (1911-18), and the New School for Social Research in NYC (1919). In 1918-19 Veblen also edited 'The Dial' , a radical literary and political magazine in New York. Best known for his first major work 'The Theory of the Leisure Class' Veblen took aim at his colleagues in the world of economics, urging them to focus on the social and cultural causes and effects of economic change and human behaviour. Economics, he argued, should not be studied as a closed system. One can fully appreciate Veblen's keen criticisms of established social and economic institutions, and a taste of his biting satire, by reading directly from one of his major works

    Thorstein Veblen on human nature
    On the train into Concord today read " Why is Economics Not an Evolutionary Science? " by Thorstein Veblen. I've never read substantial portions of Veblen before, but my future father-in-law is a specialist in him, and about the time I learned that, I also learned—serendipitously—that Veblen (1857-1929) was an admirer and friend of J.A. Hobson— and vice versa . Their friendship turns out to have been quite important because Veblen was able to organize a school of economic thought that incorporated many of Hobson's ideas about economics. ( Review of Imperialism by Veblen , PDF) Your humble correspondent has found this sort of thing handy to know because it allows me to draw ready inferences about the harmony of certain ideas. In the case of Veblen and Hobson, you have theories of domestic economics melded rigorously with theories of imperialism. Veblen was interested in the role of social conventions and institutions in determining economic outcomes, and his insights were heretical to the neoclassical economic thought that prevailed during his lifetime. In this passage from "Why Economics is not an Evolutionary Science," he explains the core premise of the "Austrian School," whose most famous recent defender was Friedrich von Hayek The economists of the classical trend have made no serious attempt to depart from the standpoint of taxonomy and make their science a genetic account of the economic life process. ...The Austrians ...have taken up a detached portion of economic theory [
