He led what became one of the most influential environmental organizations in the world. McCloskey was married to Maxine E. McCloskey, a whale and ocean conservationist who died in 2005.

The Rhetoric of Economics book. McCloskey brings a bevy of thinkers and direct quotations to bear that are far outside of your average economist’s reading list, to enlightening effect. One suspects that a fair amount is lost in this exchange. As McCloskey herself argues, appeals to authority matter, and McCloskey is hardly an authority on epistemology or the philosophy of science – though I’m in no position myself to point out exactly where and how that shows
The information in the CBOK set is vast, well written, and interesting to read. You'll find yourself reading/enjoying right along with your kids.
This is a most peculiar book. As a glance at McCloskey's enormous bibliography suffices to reveal, our author appears to have read everything. As the text shows, McCloskey can refer learnedly to Wallace Stevens's poetry, James Gibson's psychology of perception, the Gettier problem, the strong program in the philosophy of science, and Saussure's linguistics, all this aside from mastery of the literature of most branches of economics. For some reason unknown to me, McCloskey returns again and again to the theory of knowledge. He is interested in Gettier cases, a central topic of contemporary epistemology. In a Gettier case, one has a justified belief in a true proposition but doesn't know the proposition. Are We on the Edge of the Economic Abyss? The Police State. Breaking Away: The Case for Secession.
