Oltre il sacro testo: il «problema» Weber e le prospettive del pensiero weberiano

Cesare Silla

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in rivistaArticolo in rivistapeer review


Was Weber merely a scientist, or was he something more than that? Today what meaning is conveyed when we claim that a position, idea, or way of thinking falls under the Weberian rubric? These questions can be answered in two different ways: historically and contextually, or conceptually and analytically. Neither type of answer should be considered sovereign or autonomous. They support and complement each other. But we have come to realize that even these answers are insufficient, for today the Weberian legacy has spilled over into the broader public domain of cultural commentary and political argument. Weberian thought is no longer simply the property of protected enclaves of academic specialization guarding the sacred texts, but has instead been applied to the problems of contemporary public life and reimagined as a late addition to the most essential moral and political discourse in Western civilization.
