Worldly Philosopher : The Odyssey of Albert O. Hirschman Paperback / softback


Worldly Philosopher chronicles the times and writings of Albert O.

Hirschman, one of the twentieth century's most original and provocative thinkers.

In this gripping biography, Jeremy Adelman tells the story of a man shaped by modern horrors and hopes, a worldly intellectual who fought for and wrote in defense of the values of tolerance and change.

This is the first major account of Hirschman's remarkable life, and a tale of the twentieth century as seen through the story of an astute and passionate observer.

Adelman's riveting narrative traces how Hirschman's personal experiences shaped his unique intellectual perspective, and how his enduring legacy is one of hope, open-mindedness, and practical idealism.
