You'll probably find this article interesting: http://www.economist.com/node/21541706?fsrc=nlw%7Cnewe%7C1-2-2012%7Cnew_on_the_economist (it pretty much picks up where Century of the Self left off).
And in the context of trying to design institutions and organizations which are capable of accommodating and responding to varied interests, you always have to watch out for people like Frank Luntz (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Luntz).
[Luntz's] stated purpose in this is the goal of causing audiences to react based on emotion. "80 percent of our life is emotion, and only 20 percent is intellect. I am much more interested in how you feel than how you think." "If I respond to you quietly, the viewer at home is going to have a different reaction than if I respond to you with emotion and with passion and I wave my arms around. Somebody like this is an intellectual; somebody like this is a freak."
Whose influence was felt in redefining the "inheritance tax" as a "death tax" and various other phrasings which aim to connect / resonate and re-frame issues in an emotional level with the audience.
