Max Weber's Methodologies : Interpretation and Critique, Paperback / softback Book

Max Weber's Methodologies : Interpretation and Critique Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Max Weber is widely regarded as the most important and influential figure in the history of the social sciences.

Among other things, he wrote extensively on the methodology of the social sciences, but his writings on methodology are complex and are the subject of many conflicting interpretations.

In this authoritative new book, Sven Eliaeson provides a comprehensive introduction to Webera s methodology and to the various ways it has been interpreted by subsequent scholars in Europe and the United States.

Eliaeson shows how the vested interests of scholars have resulted in biased interpretations of Webera s work.

Weber was preoccupied with the intellectual problems of his time and not with our current disciplinary crises.

By placing Webera s thought and methodology in its historical context, Eliaeson is able to provide a masterly reconstruction of his central concerns while at the same time exploring the enduring relevance of Webera s work for sociology today.

This book will be recognized as a definitive work on Webera s methodology and will be an indispensable text for students and scholars in sociology and the social sciences.
