The Theory Of Social And Economic Organization

About The Book

In this work originally published in German in 1920, Weber discusses the analytical methods of sociology and, at the same time, presents a devastating critique of prevailing sociological theory and of its universalist, determinist underpinnings. None of Weber’s other writings offers the reader such a grasp of his theories; none displays so clearly his erudition, the scope of his interests, and his analytical powers.

About The Author

Maximilian Karl Emil Weber was a sociologist, historian, jurist, and political economist regarded as among the most important theorists of the development of modern Western society.
