Maxa Webera koncepcja protestanckich źródeł kapitalizmu w społeczeństwie ponowoczesnym

Adam Płachciak


According to Weber capitalism derives from the Protestant religious ethos of a rational, middle-class economic system and rational work organization. A tendency towards engaging in business and making money existed from the beginning of human history, but only the Western world was able create our modern, rational and methodological economy system. Modern capitalism was the result of a „world rationalization point of view”. According to Weber, he main barrier, which constituted the biggest obstacle in the development of modern capitalism, was a traditional way of thinking which kept people within certain types of irrational stereotypical dependencies. The unique vehicle for a new type of thinking derived from Christian doctrine, especially from protestant ethics, which put a strong emphasize on hard work, individualism and economy, together with a rational and systematic way of thinking. This article attempts to present the Weberian concept of the spirit of capitalism against the background of the postmodern changes taking place in a modern society.
