Rationality and Action

Abstract

We have seen that the vertical and horizontal fallacies are drawn from the same sort of data and that neither represents an adequate explanation of that data. Since each fallacy derives from the same problem there can be no expression of either that does not involve the other. In the illustrations offered in the previous chapter, modern Weberians were associated with the horizontal fallacy and modern Marxists with the vertical fallacy, but the connections between them can be traced from either position.
