His book is most concerned with two main ideas: the application of rationality in the wrong place, and the type of rationality that is being misapplied. He argues that the most important cause behind the demoralization of our culture lies in the popularity of a particular sort of reasoning, a sub-category of rationality called common sense, which came to dominate our thinking during the twentieth century. He applies this notion to all aspects of our lives, from our sexual relationships to our careers.

There is a continuing popular debate in the Western world about values, and in particular those values by which we conduct our private lives. This debate reflects a genuine confusion about morality; it seems that we are more unsure about where right and wrong may lie than at any previous point in our history. In The Demoralization of Western Culture Ralph Fevre undertakes an explanation of these difficulties.

This is a robust, rigorous and entertaining contribution to the widespread debate about values in particular those values according to which we conduct our private lives. Fevre argues that many of us in the Western world feel genuine confusion about our morality; we are more unsure about where right and wrong might lie than at any previous point in our history. He contends that the most important cause of our difficulties lie in the popularity of a particular sort of reasoning: "common sense" - which came to dominate our thinking during the 20th century. Drawing on information about art, sex, work, religion, nationalism, politics, the environment and advertising, he looks at why this sort of reasoning has proved so persuasive and so much more powerful than alternative modes of thinking offered by those who want to resist it.
