La ética protestante y el espíritu del capitalismo es, sin duda, la obra más célebre de Max Weber (1864-1920). Escrita en 1904/05 y revisada en 1919/20, representa un audaz esfuerzo tanto para matizar las tesis materialistas de Marx sobre la relación entre la religión y la economía como para poner en cuestión la presunta univocidad de lo racional. Desde que se publicara por primera vez, se convirtió rápidamente en uno de los textos más controvertidos y sugerentes de la sociología de la religión. La presente edición, que añade a esta obra los demás escritos de Weber sobre el protestantismo, se basa en la versión de 1920 y se beneficia de las aportaciones de la edición crítica de Johannes Winckelmann.

About the author (1998)

Max Weber, a German political economist, legal historian, and sociologist, had an impact on the social sciences that is difficult to overestimate. According to a widely held view, he was the founder of the modern way of conceptualizing society and thus the modern social sciences. His major interest was the process of rationalization, which characterizes Western civilization---what he called the "demystification of the world." This interest led him to examine the three types of domination or authority that characterize hierarchical relationships: charismatic, traditional, and legal. It also led him to the study of bureaucracy; all of the world's major religions; and capitalism, which he viewed as a productof the Protestant ethic. With his contemporary, the French sociologist Emile Durkheim---they seem not to have known each other's work---he created modern sociology.
