Was Marx's commitment to a rational theory of society
predicated on a rationalistic view of human
behavior? For Sorel  revolutionary politics is impossible without
appeal to the irrational bases of human motivation. But then
what is rational and irrational in human behavior? Is rational behavior
in fact foolish?
