Einfuhrung in die historisch-vergleichende Soziologie Max by Stephen Kalberg, Thomas Schwietring

By Stephen Kalberg, Thomas Schwietring

Die großangelegte Soziologie Max Webers bietet viel mehr als eine Reihe von "Ideal-Typen" oder begrenzte und problembezogene Untersuchungen. Selbst eine Untersuchung seines Hauptthemas - die Entstehung des westlichen Rationalismus - gibt keinen Aufschluss über Webers strenge soziologische Forschungsstrategien, die seinen wichtigsten Schriften zugrunde liegen. Durch eine vergleichende Lektüre von Max Webers soziologischen Schriften eröffnet Stephen Kalberg einen neuen Blickwinkel auf dessen Werk. Er stellt den aktuellen Nutzen für die historisch-vergleichende Soziologie heraus, deren gegenwärtige Ansätze einige Gesichtspunkte der Arbeiten von Max Weber vernachlässigen, und weist auf die tiefgreifenden kritischen Beiträge der Untersuchungen von Max Weber hin. Dabei kommt er zu dem Ergebnis, dass vor allem die nahezu universale Spannweite seiner Arbeiten, der Versuch, das sinnhafte Handeln zu "verstehen" und zugleich Handlung und Struktur zu verknüpfen sowie ein mehrstufiges Verfahren der Kausalanalyse die Aktualität von Webers Forschungsstrategien im 21. Jahrhundert ausmachen.
