By Johannes Bakker on April 29, 2016
Format: Paperback
This book was first published in 1986. There has been a great deal of research on Max Weber and theorizing utilizing Weber's insights since then. So why would anyone want to buy this book three decades later? The simple answer is that everything in this book is still relevant to the better comprehension of Max Weber's stimulating approach to sociological theory, history and "political economy." Anyone who wishes to understand the emergence of "modern capitalism" would do well to read as much of Max Weber's work as possible. The collected works (Gesamtausgabe) allow scholars to trace subtle nuances in the changes in Weber's views. But those who do not read German fluently have to rely on other languages. Professor Collins' book is a significant contribution to English-language discussions of Weber. The book is divided into four Parts: Part I: Economics, Part II: Politics, Part III: Culture, and Part IV: "Sex" [the family, the household, marriage politics, status of women, etc.). Cahpter 8 on "The Future Decline of the Russian Empire" predicted many events that took place AFTER 1986. Chapter 2 on "Weber's Last Theory of Capitalism" examines the overall theory of "modern capitalism" and thereby clarifies the importance of not just relying on the essays collected in English as "The Protestant Ethic and the 'Spirit' of ]Modern] Capitalism." Those essays from 1904, 1905 and 1906 are not the final result of Weber's work on capitalism. To some extent they can be considered very stimulating "sketches." Of course, Weber died in 1920, too early to fully predict everything that happened in subsequent years.Read more ›
