Selected contents from this journal
Languages of publication
The article is concerned with interpretations of Max Weber in general sociology. It describes the 'Parsonization' and the 'de-Parsonization' of Weber in the American sociological literature, interpretations in the theory of action, empirical sociology, the sociology of race as well as in the theory of social stratification. The influence of Weber on the rational choice theory and the 'neo-charismatic' theory of leadership are discussed. Two questions are asked: whether Weberianism can be an appropriate program for transition and whether history should dominate over sociology?
