Este libro no debe verse como un estudio detallado del protestantismo, sino, por un lado, como un estudio de la significación del modo de vida protestante para la cultura y en especial de cómo influyó en la constitución del espíritu capitalista. Por otro lado, como una introducción a trabajos posteriores en los que desarrolla más profundamente temas sólo esbozados en este libro o presentados en él como programa. Cuando se refiere al protestantismo, hace hincapié (explícitamente) en una rama de él: el calvinismo, por ser la tendencia que Weber considera más influyente para el modo de vida y la moral burguesas. No obstante, trata con extensión de muchas otras corrientes (luteranismo, pietismo, metodismo, las sectas baptistas, y varios subtipos dentro de cada una) tanto en sí mismas como en sus semejanzas y diferencias con el calvinismo. Define el espíritu del capitalismo como aquellos hábitos e ideas que favorecen el comportamiento racional para alcanzar el éxito económico según una maximización del rendimiento y una minimización de todo gasto innecesario. Este espíritu nació bajo una forma religiosa, según la cual se considera el éxito como marca de la elección divina y glorificación a Dios, pero luego fue progresivamente desprendiéndose de esa motivación religiosa en un continuo proceso de secularización.

You may be a hacker and not even know it. Being a hacker has nothing to do with cyberterrorism, and it doesn’t even necessarily relate to the open-source movement. Being a hacker has more to do with your underlying assumptions about stress, time management, work, and play. It’s about harmonizing the rhythms of your creative work with the rhythms of the rest of your life so that they amplify each other. It is a fundamentally new work ethic that is revolutionizing the way business is being done around the world. Without hackers there would be no universal access to e-mail, no Internet, no World Wide Web, but the hacker ethic has spread far beyond the world of computers. It is a mind-set, a philosophy, based on the values of play, passion, sharing, and creativity, that has the potential to enhance every individual’s and company’s productivity and competitiveness. Now there is a greater need than ever for entrepreneurial versatility of the sort that has made hackers the most important innovators of our day. Pekka Himanen shows how we all can make use of this ongoing transformation in the way we approach our working lives.

"La ética protestante y el espíritu del capitalismo" (1904/1905) fue una de las más importantes investigaciones de Max Weber. Ésta nació tras un notable incremento de la desigualdad social en un periodo de expansión económica, especialmente en Alemania, que guarda similitudes con el presente. Dicha obra es un texto clásico por ese entretejerse en un momento preciso de la historia de Occidente que empezaba a ser ya global, y por su capacidad de tocar varios aspectos claves de la modernidad en relación a su principal protagonista, el capitalismo. Durante un siglo ha sido considerada como una investigación fundacional de las ciencias sociales en general, de la historia económica, de la historia de las mentalidades, de la sociología histórica y de la sociología económica. En esta publicación, varios autores analizan, cien años después, el contexto de la obra de Weber y profundizan en aspectos concretos de la misma.

El término "burocracia" ha pasado a formar parte del lenguaje cotidiano. Preferentemente se le usa en el ámbito de las organizaciones públicas que constituyen al Estado, olvidando que las burocracias, en cualquiera de sus sentidos, operan también en el sector privado.El propio Weber consideró a la burocracia como un tipo de poder y no como un sistema social. Un tipo de poder ejercido desde el Estado por medio de su "clase en el poder", la clase dominante.

Globalisation turns out to be untenable because it does not guarantee minimum social equity, peace and respect for the environment, and therefore does not guarantee the effective accomplishment of human rights. This book analyzes this issue and raises proposals for a new perspective. The first part describes the soft threats to human rights, derived from the devaluation of the politics and the productive economy with regard to the finance. It entails the concealment of the reality in the shape of exploitation as the tax havens and in the shape of marginalization of the persons with different abilities. The second part include a study of hard threats to human rights and examines two cases of failed states: Afghanistan and Somalia, in which the violence has supplanted the politics and the economy. In view of these situations it is necessary to rethink the force of classic ius gentium and the humanitarian right. The third part presents the European Union as a legal and political space in which conditions of a worthy life are better defended by means of the Primacy of Practical Reason and Social State of Law, and by the requirement of peace as the main rule of international relations.

The Agrarian Sociology Of Ancient Civilizations

Max Weber, widely recognized as the greatest of the founders of classical sociology, is often associated with the development of capitalism in Western Europe and the analysis of modernity. But he also had a profound scholarly interest in ancient societies and the Near East, and turned the youthful discipline of sociology to the study of these archaic cultures. The Agrarian Sociology of Ancient Civilizations – Weber’s neglected masterpiece, first published in German in 1897 and reissued in 1909 – is a fascinating examination of the civilizations of Mesopotamia, Egypt, Hebrew society in Israel, the city-states of classical Greece, the Hellenistic world and, finally, Republican and Imperial Rome. The book is infused with the excitement attendant when new intellectual tools are brought to bear on familiar subjects. Throughout the work, Weber blends a description of socio-economic structures with an investigation into mechanisms and causes in the rise and decline of social systems. The volume ends with a magisterial explanatory essay on the underlying reasons for the fall of the Roman Empire. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Max Weber's Economy and Society is the greatest sociological treatise written in this century. Published posthumously in Germany in the early 1920's, it has become a constitutive part of the modern sociological imagination. Economy and Society was the first strictly empirical comparison of social structures and normative orders in world-historical depth, containing the famous chapters on social action, religion, law, bureaucracy, charisma, the city, and the political community with its dimensions of class, status and power. Economy and Status is Weber's only major treatise for an educated general public. It was meant to be a broad introduction, but in its own way it is the most demanding textbook yet written by a sociologist. The precision of its definitions, the complexity of its typologies and the wealth of its historical content make the work a continuos challenge at several levels of comprehension: for the advanced undergraduate who gropes for his sense of society, for the graduate student who must develop his own analytical skills, and for the scholar who must match wits with Weber. When the long-awaited first complete English edition of Economy and Society was published in 1968, Arthur Stinchcombe wrote in the American Journal of Sociology: "My answer to the question of whether people should still start their sociological intellectual biographies with Economy and Society is yes." Reinhard Bendix noted in the American Sociological Review that the "publication of a compete English edition of Weber's most systematic work [represents] the culmination of a cultural transmission to the American setting...It will be a study-guide and compendium for years to come for all those interested in historical sociology and comparative study." In a lengthy introduction, Guenther Roth traces the intellectual prehistory of Economy and Society, the gradual emergence of its dominant themes and the nature of its internal logic. Mr. Roth is a Professor of Sociology at Columbia University. Mr. Wittich heads an economic research group at the United Nations.

Giddens's analysis of the writings of Marx, Durkheim and Weber has become the classic text for any student seeking to understand the three thinkers who established the basic framework of contemporary sociology. The first three sections of the book, based on close textual examination of the original sources, contain separate treatments of each writer. The author demonstrates the internal coherence of their respective contributions to social theory. The concluding section discusses the principal ways in which Marx can be compared with the other two authors, and discusses misconceptions of some conventional views on the subject.

The Human Condition

Second Edition

The past year has seen a resurgence of interest in the political thinker Hannah Arendt, “the theorist of beginnings,” whose work probes the logics underlying unexpected transformations—from totalitarianism to revolution. A work of striking originality, The Human Condition is in many respects more relevant now than when it first appeared in 1958. In her study of the state of modern humanity, Hannah Arendt considers humankind from the perspective of the actions of which it is capable. The problems Arendt identified then—diminishing human agency and political freedom, the paradox that as human powers increase through technological and humanistic inquiry, we are less equipped to control the consequences of our actions—continue to confront us today. This new edition, published to coincide with the sixtieth anniversary of its original publication, contains Margaret Canovan’s 1998 introduction and a new foreword by Danielle Allen. A classic in political and social theory, The Human Condition is a work that has proved both timeless and perpetually timely.

Max Weber (1864-1920), generally known as a founder of modern social science, was concerned with political affairs throughout his life. The texts in this edition span his career and illustrate the development of his political thinking on the fate of Germany and the nature of politics in the modern Western state in an age of cultural "disenchantment." The introduction discusses the central themes of Weber's political thought, and a chronology, notes and an annotated bibliography place him in his political and cultural context.

Originally published separately, Weber's 'Science as a Vocation' and 'Politics as a Vocation' stand as the classic formulations of his positions on two related subjects that go to the heart of his thought: the nature and status of science and its claims to authority; and the nature and status of political claims and the ultimate justification for such claims. Together in this volume, these newly translated lectures offer an ideal point of entry into Weber's central project: understanding how, as Weber put it, "in the West alone there have appeared cultural manifestations [that seem to] go in the direction of universal significance and validity."

Die protestantische Ethik und der Geist des Kapitalismus ist einer von Webers international wichtigsten Beitr�gen zur Soziologie und gilt als grundlegendes Werk der Religionssoziologie. Zwischen der protestantischen Ethik und dem Beginn der Industrialisierung bzw. des Kapitalismus in Westeuropa besteht Weber zufolge ein enger Zusammenhang.Max Weber (1864-1920) gilt als Klassiker der Soziologie und der Kultur- und Sozialwissenschaften. Er nahm mit seinen Theorien und Begriffsdefinitionen gro�en Einfluss auf die sogenannten Speziellen Soziologien, insbesondere auf die Wirtschafts-, die Herrschafts- und die Religionssoziologie.Zu seinen bekanntesten, noch heute gelesenen Werken geh�ren der Aufsatz Die protestantische Ethik und der Geist des Kapitalismus sowie die Vortr�ge Wissenschaft als Beruf und Politik als Beruf.
