Rationality and Power: Democracy in Practice is a political science and sociology book Bent Flyvbjerg. Published by The University of Chicago Press in 1998, it focuses on "the application of critical theory to urban and community development". It tries to deploy a form of social science developed by Flyvbjerg in Making Social Science Matter.
Rationality and Power focuses on the study of how power influences rationality and democracy. Flyvbjerg builds the book's theory and method based on power studies he observed in several people such as Machiavelli and Max Weber. He specifically highlights Machiavelli's power studies in Florence as a source of influence for the choice of in-depth case studies to understand the dynamics of power and how power enables and constrains rationality and rational government. Flyvbjerg also develops and identifies "ten propositions about rationality and power" that can be used when researching.
