This book presents the striking proposition that by paying attention to what’s been learned about human behavior, we can develop a political agenda that is in the human interest. Such values provide the basis for an action-oriented sociology. Poltics in the Human Interest explores the theoretical foundation of a humanistic sociology. It is a call for the return to the original progressive agenda – that knowledge about human behavior can be used to create social progress and a better world.
