Specialists Without Spirit

first review
5out of 5

by rejoyce on September 25, 2007

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.
