Rationalization (sociology) – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Rationalization (sociology) – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.  As promised.  Rationalisation is defined here as the process whereby increasing numbers of social actions become based on considerations of teleological efficiency or calculation [of interest], rather than on motivations derived from morality, emotion, custom, or tradition.  This is a really interesting definition.  Needs some examination. Integration tomorrow (if I remember).  Want to read through all posts and deal with any left TBC.
