i read this book at univ. of washington in 1964 and. loved it then. i do not appreciate the interpretation in this edition.. i wanted to read Weber only. what i had before was pure Weber, i wish i had kept my old.book but i was a poor student and sold it back to the univ of washington book store. this book is in new condition but i do not like it and would not have bought,had i been able to read parts of it prior to buying. it is in new condition. since i dislike it as much as i do it is not a total waste of my meager resources, but close. i regret buying this edition. i loved the book i had before so this is a disappointment. perhaps that makes this review unfair. if so, sorry.
Weber's Protestant Ethic is a fantastic perspective on religion, work ethic, and the emergence and continuation of capitalism in the developed world. For anyone interested in the social sciences, poverty studies, and religion this book is a must.
In The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism, sociologist Max Weber asserts that the Calvinist ethos of doing good works on earth in order to be rewarded in heaven is conjoined with industrial capitalism. The result is "Specialists without spirit, sensualists without heart; this nullity imagines that it has attained a level of civilization never before achieved." A prophetic text.
