Economía y sociedad: esbozo de sociología comprensiva

Fondo de Cultura Económica, 1964 - 1237 páginas
Economía y sociedad se presenta como esbozo titánico de la llamada sociología comprensiva. A lo largo de su exposición, no por compleja y detallada menos dueña de una cohesión estructural, Max Weber estudia desde los conceptos fundamentales de la sociología y la economía hasta los diversos tipos de dominación, desde la evolución del derecho hasta los fundamentos sociológicos de la música.

Acerca del autor (1964)

Max Weber, a German political economist, legal historian, and sociologist, had an impact on the social sciences that is difficult to overestimate. According to a widely held view, he was the founder of the modern way of conceptualizing society and thus the modern social sciences. His major interest was the process of rationalization, which characterizes Western civilization---what he called the "demystification of the world." This interest led him to examine the three types of domination or authority that characterize hierarchical relationships: charismatic, traditional, and legal. It also led him to the study of bureaucracy; all of the world's major religions; and capitalism, which he viewed as a productof the Protestant ethic. With his contemporary, the French sociologist Emile Durkheim---they seem not to have known each other's work---he created modern sociology.
