The Max Weber Dictionary : Key Words and Central Concepts, Second Edition, Paperback / softback Book

The Max Weber Dictionary : Key Words and Central Concepts, Second Edition Paperback / softback


Max Weber is one of the world's most important social scientists, but he is also one of the most notoriously difficult to understand.

This revised, updated, and expanded edition of The Max Weber Dictionary reflects up-to-the-moment threads of inquiry and introduces the most recent translations and references.

Additionally, the authors include new entries designed to help researchers use Weber's ideas in their own work; they illuminate how Weber himself thought theorizing should occur and how he went about constructing a theory. More than an elementary dictionary, however, this work makes a contribution to the general culture and legacy of Weber's work.

In addition to entries on broad topics like religion, law, and the West, the completed German definitive edition of Weber's work (Max Weber Gesamtausgabe) necessitated a wealth of new entries and added information on topics like pragmatism and race and racism.

Every entry in the dictionary delves into Weber scholarship and acts as a point of departure for discussion and research.

As such, this book will be an invaluable resource to general readers, students, and scholars alike.
