Ever heard of a guy named Maximilian Karl Emil Max Weber? Well, apparently he was a famous German sociologist, philosopher, and political economist. Although I personally always get confused with the actor on our, anywho this other Max Weber wrote a couple of books, the “Protestant ethic” and “the spirit of capitalism”, although of course, they were written in German. I studied German in college for two years and at this point in my life, all I can remember is how feeders aimed. Fortunately for us, C-minus language students.

In 1930, Talcott Parsons translated the book into English. Weber’s ideas had a significant influence on social theory, Social Research, and the discipline of sociology. It’s possible to observe Weber cited words, together with the names of Emile Durkheim and Karl Marx, and they all are the three leading creators of sociology. Weber’s primary considerations were about the processes of rationalization, secularization, and disenchantment, which he related to the rise of capitalism and modernity, and which he saw as the result of a new way of thinking.

Weber emphasized the importance of cultural influences embedded in religion, as a means for understanding the essence of capitalism. He was also the first to capital categorize social authority into separate forms, which he named charismatic, traditional, and rational dash legal. His analysis of bureaucracy emphasizes the modern state institutions focus on rational-legal authority. Weber also made many other contributions to economic history, economic theory, and methodology.

A German idealism that influenced Weber’s thought, especially important to Weber’s considerations is the Neo Kantian belief that that reality is very chaotic, what we call the rational order deriving from how the human mind focuses on specific aspects of reality and organizes the resulting perceptions and whatnot. concert considering Weber’s understanding of the word,, he tried to create at least 1500 specific and comprehensive sets of rules governing social sciences and in particular sociology.

Another college-level class I did poorly in Weber’s considerations developed from the context of a more extensive discussion about Tom the methodology of Social Sciences. Weber’s position was closely related to historicism, as he understood social actions as being connected to particular historical contexts, and its analysis required the understanding of subjective motives of individuals. Thus, Weber’s methodology emphasizes the use of comparative historical analysis. Also, it was more interesting for Weber to analyze how a particular outcome was the result of various historical processes, he did not try to predict some outcomes or processes in the future. The main topic of Weber’s works is devoted to rationalization and individual freedom and rational society.

This theme developed in the relationship between psychological motives, cultural values, religious beliefs, and the structure of the organization, which is determined by the economy. Concerning rationalization, Weber first claimed the individual cost-benefit calculation, then the bureaucratic organization, and finally understanding the reality through mystery and magic. Also, nine times out of 10 human fate according to Weber, is characterized by rationalization and intellectualization.
