9780024248602: Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism

A brilliant book which studies the psychological conditions which made possible the development of capitalist civilization. The book analyzes the connection between the spread of Calvinism and a new attitude toward the pursuit of wealth in post-Reformation Europe and England, and attitude which permitted, encouraged—even sanctified—the human quest for prosperity.

Review:

"One of the most renowned and controversial works of modern social science."-Anthony Giddens "Max Weber is the one undisputed canonical figure in contemporary sociology."-Times Higher Education Supplement

From the Back Cover:

'One of the most renowned and controversial works of modern social science.' - Anthony Giddens

Max Weber's best-known and most controversial work, 'The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism', first published in 1904, remains to this day a powerful and fascinating read. Weber's highly accessible style is just one of many reasons for his continuing popularity. The book contends that the Protestant ethic made possible and encouraged the development of capitalism in the West. Widely considered as the most informed work ever written on the social effects of advanced capitalism, 'The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism' holds its own as one of the most significant books of the twentieth century. The book is one of those rare works of scholarship which no informed citizen can afford to ignore.

Max Weber (1864-1920). One of the founding fathers of modern sociology.
