About this product
- DescriptionWhile most people are familiar with The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism, few kw that during the last decade of his life Max Weber (1864-1920) also tried to develop a new way of analyzing ecomic phemena, which he termed ecomic sociology. Indeed, this effort occupies the central place in Weber's thought during the years just before his death. Richard Swedberg here offers a critical presentation and the first major study of this fascinating part of Weber's work. This book shows how Weber laid a solid theoretical foundation for ecomic sociology and developed a series of new and highly evocative concepts. He t only investigated ecomic phemena but also linked them clearly with political, legal, and religious phemena. Swedberg also demonstrates that Weber's approach to ecomic sociology addresses a major problem that has haunted ecomic analysis since the nineteenth century: how to effectively unite an interest-driven type of analysis (popular with ecomists) with a social one (of course preferred by sociologists). Exploring Weber's views of the ecomy and how he viewed its relationship to politics, law, and religion, Swedberg furthermore discusses similarities and differences between Weber's ecomic sociology and present-day thinking on the same topic. In addition, the author shows how ecomic sociology has recently gained greater credibility as ecomists and sociologists have begun to collaborate in studying problems of organizations, political structures, social problems, and ecomic culture more generally. Swedberg's book will be sure to further this new cooperation.
