The Marx-Weber Debate

Book - 1987
Rate this:
To what extent are the ideas of Marx and Weber incompatible and contradictory? Is there no interplay between the theoretical systems of these acknowledged masters of social theory?

The arguments which have raged for almost a century between Marxists and Weberians have stressed the opposition of their ideas at the expense of the convergence. This volume changes the emphasis: the contributors, drawn from both Marxist and Weberian schools of thought, explore areas of conceptual overlap. They consider important similarities in notions of contradiction, revolution, the role of culture, the class-state relationship, and the self.
