The culture of capitalism

Alan Macfarlane

Concerned with the origins of capitalism and the conditions that accompanied its birth, this work argues that capitalism is more than an economic system: it is a culture that affects not just the material but also the social, familial and even spiritual bases of existence. The author considers the nature of evil, attitudes towards love and the family, the phenomenon of violence, population change and revolution and how we have come both to dominate and to revere the natural world.
