Max Weber and The Protestant Ethic

Peter Ghosh

Oxford University Press

This chapter explores the theme of religion that descends from the PE. It demonstrates an essential continuity between the ideas presented in the PE in 1904–5, and those advanced in his second wave of religious writing from 1912 onwards (the Sociology of Religion and the ‘Economic Ethics of the World Religions’). It discusses the physical continuity and discontinuity between the PE and the ‘Economic Ethics’, and the qualitative differences between the PE and the later religious writings.

Keywords:   Max Weber, Economic Ethics, The Protestant Ethic, religion, continuity
