Max Weber's science of man : new studies for a biography of the work

Wilhelm Hennis ; translated by Keith Tribe

In this work, the author continues his argument against received wisdom in the understanding of Max Weber. He seeks to rescue the work of this important thinker from sociologists and systems-theorists, demonstrating an essential continuity throughout Weber's work in his concern with the pervasive force of economic calculation and material rationality in the shaping of "man". Ranging widely over the work of Weber's contemporaries, and making use of Weber's unpublished papers and correspondence, the author provides an elegant account of the motive of Weber's scholarship. He demonstrates how a better understanding of Weber in his own context can present us with a figure who can still teach us, as he sought to teach his own contemporaries.
