Summary

In this posthumous book Weber is concerned with twogeneral problems: the analysis of the primary institutional forms underlying the phenomena ofhistory, and the analysis of the progressive transformation to these forms. He finds in thesupernaturalism organiation of economic life. Its establishment is brought about by the rise ofrationalism to dominant influence in all phases of social life, and for this reason adequateappreciation of the transition requires consideration of all classes of historical material.

Ira J. Cohen isassistant professor of sociology, Rutgers University.
