Theory collage: whiskey, ladettes and Thornstein Veblen


I am starting a new blog project/category: “theory collages”; in which I am putting together socially meaningful images we encounter in daily life; with quotes from sociologists/anthropologists/social theorists; and let them speak for themselves.

So here we go, today I give you Thorstein Veblen.

The quote is from Veblen’s “The Theory of the Leisure Class”, first published in 1899; which you can read here.
