9780415773232: The Undermining of Beliefs in the Autonomy and Rationality of Consumers (Routledge Interpretive Marketing Research)

This book examines modern consumption, focusing on concepts of autonomy and rationality. In recent years, conventional ideas of 'free will' have come under attack in the context of consumer choice and similarly, postmodernists have sabotaged the very notion of consumer rationality. O’Shaughnessy and O'Shaughnessy adopt a moderating perspective, reviewing and critiquing these attacks in order to work towards a more nuanced view of the consumer: neither entirely autonomous nor perfectly rational.

While the first part of this book concentrates on assailing critiques of 'free-will', the second part takes issue with the postmodernist emphasis on the non-rational. The authors situate these critiques in the context of key academic debate, examining the logic and empirical bases for their claims thus leading to a deeper understanding of 'bounded' rationality and the potential of the adaptive unconscious to affect consumer choice.

Review:

"The unbeatable father-and-son team of John-and-Nicholas O’Shaughnessy has produced another stimulating and provocative book on issues of relevance to consumer behavior, communication, and marketing. In this book, these distinguished scholars draw upon their strong backgrounds in philosophy and the social sciences to integrate ideas from two areas of inquiry – namely, bounded rationality and postmodernism. They make connections of obvious importance and profundity that have thus far remained unexplored in the literature on marketing and consumer research." Morris B. Holbrook, Dillard Professor of Marketing (Graduate School of Business, Columbia University, New York, NY)
