9780674001831: Max Weber's Methodology: The Unification of the Cultural and Social Sciences

At a time when historical and cultural analyses are being subjected to all manner of ideological and disciplinary prodding and poking, the work of Max Weber, the brilliant social theorist and one of the most creative intellectual forces in the twentieth century, is especially relevant. In this significant study, Fritz Ringer offers a new approach to the work of Weber, interpreting his methodological writings in the context of the lively German intellectual debates of his day. According to Ringer, Weber was able to bridge the intellectual divide between humanistic interpretation and causal explanation in historical and cultural studies in a way that speaks directly to our own time, when methodological differences continue to impede fruitful cooperation between humanists and social scientists. In the place of the humanists' subjectivism and the social scientists' naturalism, Weber developed the flexible and realistic concepts of objective probability and adequate causation.

Grounding technical theories in specific examples, Ringer has written an essential text for all students of Weber and of social theory in the humanities and social sciences. Fully reconstructed, Max Weber's methodological position in fact anticipated the most fruitful directions in our own contemporary philosophies of the cultural and social sciences. Ringer's conceptualization of Weber's approach and achievement elucidates Weber's reconciliation of interpretive understanding and causal explanation and shows its relevance to intellectual life and culture in Weber's own time and in ours as well.

About the Author:

Fritz Ringer is Mellon Professor of History at the University of Pittsburgh, and the author of The Decline of the German Mandarins and Fields of Knowledge.

Review:

Max Weber's methodology has traditionally been claimed by two camps; one that wants to steer the social sciences in the interpretive or hermeneutic direction and one that favors a more objectivist or positivistic social science. Fritz Ringer's book presents a clear and well-written summary of Weber's methodological position, but it is also a plea to scholars to overcome these differences. Ringer argues that, in the end, all the social sciences need to engage in causal explanation and that Weber's ideas are still relevant to the project of a causal, objective, and scientific social science...This book is now arguably the most reliable and readable exposition in English of Weber's complicated methodological essays. (Ralph Schroeder Isis)

This is an extraordinarily illuminating work that every serious student of Weber will have to reckon with. Nothing else is remotely comparable for conceptualizing Weber's methodological orientations. This is a truly major work for the history of the social sciences. (Donald Fleming, Harvard University)

Max Weber's Methodology examines, with exemplary clarity, Weber's contributions to methodological debates vis-à-vis a vast variety of contemporary opponents. Written by a careful, mature scholar in full command of his texts, it is an excellent and original study that offers an unusually insightful and balanced presentation of Weber's methodology. (Stephen Kalberg, Boston University)
