Sample text

Sociology…means the science whose object is to interpret the meaning of social action…and the effects which it produces’ (Weber [1922] 1989: 7). ). He postulated that there are four types of social action: ‘i) rational in the sense of employing appropriate means to a given end (‘zweckrational’)… ii) rational in the sense that it is an attempt to realize some absolute value (‘wertrational’)… iii) affectively (and in particular emotionally) determined… iv) traditional behaviour’ (Weber [1922] 1989: 28).

Yet, Weber observes, the capitalism so founded eventually eradicates the religious ethic aiding its development. The Protestant Ethic ends with Weber’s observation that turn-of-the-20th-century capitalism, as exemplified in the United States of America, was increasingly ‘stripped of its religious and ethical meaning… [and that] victorious capitalism, since it rests on mechanical foundations, needs its support no longer…the idea of duty in one’s calling prowls about in our lives like the ghost of dead religious beliefs’ ([1904–05] 1958: 182).

Notwithstanding the generative bases in the liberal utilitarian and empiricist traditions, a counterposing, or some would argue, complementary, idealist tradition, especially that of the German philosophers, contributed to the construction of sociology. Theorists in the tradition of Hegel, most obviously Karl Marx and Georg Simmel, encouraged the development of grand theory and analytically interpretive theories of social phenonema. The work of these theorists, and that of Le Play, Weber, Pareto, Tönnies and others, contributed a humanist, idealist, dimension to the establishment of the discipline of sociology.
