Ross Sterrett Mr. Jimenez ENG 102 11 November 2013 Much of modern society is highly focused on the aspects of human life that end with death. They focus on that which is mortal and temporary.

The Great Transformation to Market Society
We are living in market society, which is so different from previous societies. In market society, the whole of society is a system of self-regulating market (Polanyi 43). In order to make the market society function, people need to think and act in certain ways (Polanyi 68). For example, people in market society think that economic relations are much more important than interpersonal relations (Polanyi 44). Polanyi calls the emergence of market society “the great transformation”. My thesis sta...
