This book is the first full length account of the significance of MacIntyre's work for the social sciences. MacIntyre's moral philosophy is shown to provide the resources for a powerful critique of liberalism. His discussion of the managerist and emotivist roots of modern culture is seen as the inspiration for a critical social science of Modernity.

Industry Reviews

"A provocative "tour-de-force . . . he showed that MacIntyre's early Christianity, his excursions into Marxism, his neo-Aristotelianism, his Hegelianism and his later Thomism are all parts of the same search for the virtuous community, for the authenticity of theory related to practice." -Ioan Davies, York University, Canada
