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.

By Michel Onfray

ISBN-13: 9788862202978

In questo nuovo quantity della sua Controstoria, Onfray demolisce il mito di un Illuminismo razionalista e materialista, denunciando il carattere assai moderato o persino retrivo di alcuni fra i suoi più celebrati esponenti, e tracciando inedite demarcazioni fra i «buoni» materialisti e edonisti e i «cattivi» idealisti del secolo dei Lumi. Anche se messi all’Indice dal Sant’Uffizio, Voltaire e in fondo anche Diderot rimangono infatti deisti e antiatei, vincolati in maniera ambigua ai ricatti della trascendenza. Kant? Misogino e in step with di più razzista, come Diderot e Buffon. Sade? Un protofascista, che predica l. a. sopraffazione, lo sfruttamento e il disgusto del corpo. Rousseau poi, oltre che criptoidealista, è un reazionario luddista, contrario alla scienza e favorevole alla cieca obbedienza e all’ignoranza del popolo.
Chi è da salvare sono invece gli esponenti di una corrente minore e storicamente perdente dell’Illuminismo "estremista": pensatori come Meslier, l. a. Mettrie, Maupertuis, Helvétius, d’Holbach.
