Fiction Sets You Free
For those who don't know, Russell Berman's book Fiction Sets You Free is one of the few pro-market works of literary theory out there. Spontaneous order theory is detectable all throughout the book. One could have a good time refuting most of what is said in this review, which starts off discussing another of his books that has nothing to do with literary theory -- or free markets -- which the author does primarily to prejudice his readers against the book before he even begins to review it.
