Product Description

In the PROTESTANT ETHIC AND THE "SPIRIT" OF CAPITALISM, Max Weber opposes the Marxist concept of dialectical materialism and relates the rise of capitalist economy to the Calvinist belief in the moral value of hard work and the fulfillment of one's worldly duties. Based on the original German 1905 edition, this volume included, along with Weber's treatise, an illuminating introduction, a wealth of explanatory notes, and exemplary responses and remarks- both from Weber and his critic- that were sparked by its publication.

Author Bio

Max Weber (1864-1920), German sociologist, one of the founders of modern sociology. He emphasised cultural and political factors as key influences on economic development and individual behaviour. Weber argued for a scientific and value-free approach to research, yet highlighted the importance of meaning and consciousness in understanding social action. His ideas continue to stimulate thought on social stratification, power, organisations, law, and religion. Peter Baehr teaches in the department of politics and sociology at Lingnan University in Hong Kong.
