This major study of the father of modern sociology explores the intimate relationship between the events of Max Weber's personal history and the development of his thought. When it was first published in 1970, Paul Roazen described "The Iron Cage "as "an example of the history of ideas at its very best"; while Robert A. Nisbet said that "we learn more about Weber's life in this volume than from any other in the English language." Weber's life and work developed in reaction to the rigidities of familial and social structures in Imperial Germany. In his youth he was torn by irreconcilable tensions between the Bismarckian authoritarianism of his father and the ethical puritanism of his mother. These tensions led to a psychic crisis when, in his thirties, he expelled his father (who died soon thereafter) from his house. His reaction to the collapse of the European social order before and during World War I was no less personal and profound. It is the triumph of Professor Mitzman's approach that he convincingly demonstrates how the internalizing of these severe experiences led to Weber's pessimistic vision of the future as an "iron cage" and to such seminal ideas as the notion of charisma and the concept of the Protestant ethic and its connection with the spirit of capitalism. The author's thesis also serves as a vehicle for describing the social, political, and personal plight of the European bourgeois intellectual of Weber's generation. In synthesizing Weber's life and thought, Arthur Mitzman has expanded and refined our understanding of this central twentieth-century figure. As Lewis Coser writes in the preface, until now "there has been little attempt to bring together the work and the man, to show the ways in which Weber's cognitive intentions, his choice of problems, were linked with the details of his personal biography. Arthur Mitzman fills this gap brilliantly."

Lesen Sie die besten Werke großer Schriftsteller,Poeten, Autoren und Philosophen auf Ihrem Kindle Reader. Dieses Werk bietet zusätzlich * Eine Biografie/Bibliografie des Autors. Die protestantische Ethik und der Geist des Kapitalismus ist ein Werk von Max Weber, das zuerst in Form eines zweiteiligen Aufsatzes im November 1904 und Frühjahr 1905 im Archiv für Sozialwissenschaften und Sozialpolitik, Bd. XX und XXI erschien, und das 1920 in überarbeiteter Fassung veröffentlicht wurde. Es zählt neben Webers Schrift Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft zu seinen international wichtigsten Beiträgen zur Soziologie und ist ein grundlegendes Werk der Religionssoziologie. Zwischen der protestantischen Ethik und dem Beginn der Industrialisierung bzw. des Kapitalismus in Westeuropa besteht nach diesem Werk ein enger Zusammenhang. Die Kompatibilität („Wahlverwandtschaften“) der Ethik oder religiösen Weltanschauung der Protestanten, insbesondere der Calvinisten, und dem kapitalistischen Prinzip der Akkumulation von Kapital und Reinvestition von Gewinnen waren ein idealer Hintergrund für die Industrialisierung.

Max Webers These von der protestantischen Arbeitsethik, die dem Kapitalismus erst zu seinem Siegeszug verhalf, ist Allgemeingut. Entsprechend gilt Webers Abhandlung "Die protestantische Ethik und der Geist des Kapitalismus" seit ihrem Erscheinen vor über 100 Jahren als eine der maßgebenden soziologischen Untersuchungen. Heinz Steinert unterzieht Webers Aufsatzreihe der schon lange fälligen kritischen wissenschaftlichen Analyse und Historisierung. Sein Befund: Es gibt keinen grundsätzlichen Zusammenhang zwischen Protestantismus und kapitalistischem Wirtschaften. Webers Schrift ist vielmehr in ihrem historischen Kontext, als Teil der preußischen Religionskämpfe, zu sehen. Es wird darin die Krisenerfahrung der preußischen Bürger-Männlichkeit um die Jahrhundertwende in einer "asketischen" Haltung verarbeitet. Der Autor weist überdies nach, dass Begriffe wie "Idealtypus" oder "Wahlverwandtschaft" nur noch historisch interessant sind und dass eine neuerliche Befragung der weberschen Quellen zu neuen, anderslautenden Schlüssen führen muss.

Die in diesem Band zusammengefassten Beiträge haben das Spannungsverhältnis zwischen ‚Kultur’ und ‚Gesellschaft’ sowie das Verhältnis der Soziologie zu einer kulturwissenschaftlichen Tradition zum Gegenstand, wie sie sich im deutschen Sprachraum seit dem Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts herausgebildet hat. Sie sind Ausdruck langjähriger Bemühungen, dieses Spannungsverhältnis zwischen den Kulturwissenschaften und der modernen Soziologie als produktive Herausforderung zu begreifen und entsprechend verantwortlich damit umzugehen. Denn es gibt viele Gründe, die dafür sprechen, dass der um 1900 beginnende Prozess der Ausdifferenzierung verschiedener wissenschaftlicher Disziplinen auch innerhalb der Kultur- und Sozialwissenschaften nicht mehr zugunsten einer universalistische Ansprüche stellenden ‚Kulturwissenschaft’ rückgängig gemacht werden kann.

George Ritzer’s McDonaldization of Society, now celebrating its’ 20thanniversary, continues to stand as one of the pillars of modern day sociological thought. By linking theory to 21st century culture, this book resonates with students in a way that few other books do, opening their eyes to many current issues, especially in consumption and globalization. As in previous editions, the book has been updated and it offers new discussions of, among others, In-N-Out- Burger and Pret A Manger as possible antitheses of McDonaldization. The biggest change, however, is that the book has been radically streamlined to offer an even clearer articulation of the now-famous McDonaldization thesis.

Die Frage, was die Moderne sei, ist für die Soziologie von klassischer Bedeutung. Großereignisse wie der Zusammenbruch des Sozialismus oder Phänomene der Globalisierung und Transnationalisierung stellen die Gültigkeit von Modernisierungstheorien, die von einem linearen Prozess der Rationalisierung und Verwestlichung ausgingen, infrage. In diesem Band wird Moderne kulturtheoretisch betrachtet: als komplexe historische wie globale Konstellation unterschiedlicher, teils widersprüchlicher Sinnsysteme und Praktiken. Mit Beiträgen unter anderem von Johannes Angermüller, Ulrich Bröckling, Shmuel N. Eisenstadt, Bernhard Giesen, Karin Knorr-Cetina,Matthias König, Scott Lash, Michael Makropoulos, Shalini Randeria, Hartmut Rosa, Urs Stäheli und Peter Wagner.

The Orient was central to the work of Marx and Weber, both figures building their theories around the question of why modernity appeared to emerge only in the West. While Marx’s account focused on the accumulation of capital in the West, Weber’s explanation for this phenomenon centred on Western rationalization. Extending recent work comparing the social theories of Marx and Weber, this book examines their approaches to Oriental societies, showing how, in spite of the differences in their respective theorizations of the historical and political development of the West, their work on the form of modern society in the Orient converges, each complementing the other. Fully conversant with recent scholarly work on Marx and Weber, this comprehensive re-examination of the points of convergence and departure in their work requires us to re-evaluate both their positions in the history of sociology and their relevance to contemporary social questions. As such, it will appeal to scholars of social and political theory and classical sociology.

In this volume, Mr Runciman has selected extracts, from Max Weber's writings which reflect the full range of his major concerns: the nature of domination in human society, the role of ideas in history, the social determinants of religion, the origin and impact of industrial capitalism and the scope and limits of social science itself. He has also included some shorter extracts from Weber's less familiar writings on such diverse topics as the stock exchange and the history of the piano.

2013 sees the centenary of Jaspers' foundation of psychopathology as a science in its own right. In 1913 Karl Jaspers published his psychiatric opus magnum - the Allgemeine Psychopathologie (General Psychopathology). Jaspers was working at a time much like our own - with rapid expansion in the neurosciences, and responding to the philosophical challenges that this raised. The idea inspiring his book was very simple: to bring order into the chaos of abnormal psychic phenomena by rigorous description, definition and classification, and to empower psychiatry with a valid and reliable method to assess and make sense of abnormal human subjectivity. After almost one century, many of the concepts challenged by Jaspers are still at issue, and Jaspers' investigation is even now the ground for analyses and discussions. With a new edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) imminent, many of the issues concerning methodology and diagnosis are still the subject of much discussion and debate. This volume brings together leading psychiatrists and philosophers to discuss and evaluate the impact of this volume, its relevance today, and the legacy it left. "Jaspers' General Psychopathology is not an easy text to read. Especially nowadays, in the Internet era, it may appear in several parts obscure, convoluted, or repetitive. This is why the present volume has the potential to be not only attractive to scholars, but also extremely useful for young psychiatrists and busy clinicians. It may represent for them a 'guide' to the reading of that ponderous text, helping them to extract the key messages that are likely to resonate with, and at the same time enrich, their clinical practice and theoretical reflection." - From the Introduction by Mario Maj
