About Max Weber
Max Weber was a German sociologist, philosopher, and political economist.
Weber is often considered a founder of the concept of sociology. As the modern era arose, people began to become disenchanted with religion and began to value rationalism and secularism. Weber was interested in this, and he also studied sociology of religion and economics. In his thesis The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism, Weber proposes that culture in religion is important the formation of capitalism, and that nations with different religions have differing forms of capitalism. Weber's ideas often go against Karl Marx's historical materialism.
