While Nietzsche’s influence on philosophy, literature and art is beyond dispute, his influence on sociology is often called into question. A close textual analysis of Nietzsche’s works and those of important sociologists – Max and Alfred Weber, Ferdinand Tönnies, Rosa Mayreder – provides the first comprehensive account of their study and use of Nietzsche’s writings. Above all, Nietzsche’s critique of modernity, morality and culture are shown to have had a decisive influence on the development of sociology and the work of its leading thinkers at the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th.

English summary: 100 years after the publication of Max Weber's famous work The Protestant Ethic and the 'Spirit' of Capitalism, the discussion surrounding this work is still very much alive. The scholars engaged in this discussion did not, however, always examine the context of the study, especially the impact of the relationship between Max Weber and Ernst Troeltsch on it. The articles in this volume, the result of a symposium on Weber and Troeltsch, which took place in the spring of 2004, focus on this somewhat neglected relationship. German description: In den Jahren 1904 und 1905, also vor nunmehr 100 Jahren, veroffentlichte Max Weber seine inzwischen weltberuhmte Studie Die protestantische Ethik und der 'Geist' des Kapitalismus als Aufsatz in zwei Folgen. Dieser loste unmittelbar nach Erscheinen die erste Kontroverse und spater eine Flut von Sekundarliteratur aus. Viele Reaktionen auf die Studie, positive und negative, beruhen freilich auch darauf, dass Text und Kontext missverstanden wurden. 100 Jahre danach ist die Diskussion um die Studie so lebendig wie eh und je. Fur die Autoren der Beitrage in diesem Band war das Jubilaum Anlass, abermals - hoffentlich mit frischem Blick - Text und Kontext zu bedenken. Mehr als sonst wurde dabei auch der Einfluss des Heidelberger Gelehrtenmilieus auf die Konzeption der Studie gepruft. Insbesondere interessierte das Verhaltnis von Max Weber und Ernst Troeltsch, die in dieser Phase ihres Schaffens durch eine 'Fachmenschenfreundschaft' eng verbunden waren. Die Beitrage dieses Bandes entstammen einem Symposium, das im Fruhjahr 2004 stattfand und an dem Weber- und Troeltsch-Forscher teilnahmen.

Anhand zeitgenossischer Kritik, aber auch anhand aktuellerer Kritik an diesem Werk soll dann die Reichweite und Gultigkeit seiner Ausfuhrungen bis heute gepruft werden. Denn seine Aussagen schlagen gerade vor aktuellem Hintergrund eine beeindruckende Verbindung zwischen asketischem Protestantismus und modernem Kapitalismus, Klimaschutz und Wohlstandsverteilung in der Welt: 1 Weber, Max: Kritische Bemerkungen zu den vorstehenden >Kritischen Beitragen

Max Weber in America

Max Weber, widely considered a founder of sociology and the modern social sciences, visited the United States in 1904 with his wife Marianne. The trip was a turning point in Weber's life and it played a pivotal role in shaping his ideas, yet until now virtually our only source of information about the trip was Marianne Weber's faithful but not always reliable 1926 biography of her husband.Max Weber in America carefully reconstructs this important episode in Weber's career, and shows how the subsequent critical reception of Weber's work was as American a story as the trip itself. Lawrence Scaff provides new details about Weber's visit to the United States--what he did, what he saw, whom he met and why, and how these experiences profoundly influenced Weber's thought on immigration, capitalism, science and culture, Romanticism, race, diversity, Protestantism, and modernity. Scaff traces Weber's impact on the development of the social sciences in the United States following his death in 1920, examining how Weber's ideas were interpreted, translated, and disseminated by American scholars such as Talcott Parsons and Frank Knight, and how the Weberian canon, codified in America, was reintroduced into Europe after World War II. A landmark work by a leading Weber scholar, Max Weber in America will fundamentally transform our understanding of this influential thinker and his place in the history of sociology and the social sciences.

Ernst Troeltsch focuses his Protestantism and Progress on two main areas. First, he centers on the intellectual and religious situation, from which the significance and the possibilities of development possessed by Christianity might be deduced. This leads to an engaging historical investigation regarding the spirit of the modern world. Troeltsch argues that the modern world can only be understood in the light of its relation to earlier epochs of Christian civilization in Europe. He notes that for anyone who holds the opinion that in spite of all the significance that Catholicism retains, the living possibilities of development and progress are to be found on Protestant soil, the question regarding the relation of Protestantism to modern civilization becomes of central importance. Troeltsch also distinguishes elements in modern civilization that have proven their value from those which are merely temporary and lead nowhere. He gives the religious ideas of Christianity a shape and form capable of doing justice to the absoluteness of religious conviction, and at the same time considering them in harmony with what has actually been accomplished towards solution of the practical problems of the Christian life. A new introduction by Howard Schneiderman brings this monumental work into the twenty-first century, and explains why its ideas are more important than ever, one hundred years after its original publication.
