The simplistic dichotomy between "rational" and "moral" behaviour is shown to fall short of a satisfactory account of economic relationships in this particular context. The complex intersection of different forms of rationality on an Irish family farm, half-way between peasant and capitalist agricultural producers, calls for newer and less rigid hypothesesen
