Max Weber's contributions

Love gives a gig.




Max Weber, (born April 21, 1864, 

ErfurtPrussia [Germany]—died June 14, 1920, Munich, Germany), German sociologist and political economist best known for his thesis of the “Protestant ethic,” relating Protestantism to capitalism, and for his ideas on bureaucracy
Weber’s two most celebrated contributions were the “rationalization thesis,” a grand meta-historical analysis of the dominance of the west in modern times, and the “Protestant Ethic thesis,” a non-Marxist genealogy of modern capitalism. He formulated a thesis arguing that such processes are associated with the rise of capitalism and modernity.

Weber is also known for his thesis combining economic sociology and the sociology of religion, emphasising the importance of cultural influences embedded in religion as driving factors of capitalism.He believed that a bureaucrat's ideal type is the ultimate goal in order to avoid any corruption. Max Weber's type of bureaucracy is an administration that upholds the rules and regulations with strict adherence to protocol. The guidelines are written, followed, and enforced consistently from employee to employee He  formulated a thesis arguing that such processes are associated with the rise of capitalism and modernity. Weber is also known for his thesis combining economic sociology and the sociology of religion, emphasising the importance of cultural influences embedded in religion as driving factors of capitalism.

Weber's ideas on education highlight the relationship between power and education. They recognise the difference between education as a cultural value and education related to the pursuit of power, whether in the case of capitalist society or traditional Chinese society or in the context of his own (German) society.

Weber attempted to build respect for sociology as a discipline by defining a value-free methodology for it and by analyzing the religious cultures of India and China for comparison with the Western religious tradition. Also of critical importance in his last decade was his stoic examination of the conditions and consequences of the rationalization of Western political and economic life in Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft (1922; Economy and Society) and in journal articles.

Indeed, Weber’s most powerful impact on his contemporaries came in the last years of his life, when, from 1916 to 1918, he argued powerfully against Germany’s annexationist war goals and in favour of a strengthened parliament. He stood bravely for sobriety in politics and scholarship against the apocalyptic mood of right-wing students in the months following Germany’s defeat in World War I. After assisting in the drafting of the new constitution and in the founding of the German Democratic Party, Weber died of a lung infection in June 1920
