On 11th of December 2014 the German Historical Institute London hosted a discussion in commemoration of Max Weber’s 150th anniversary with three Weber experts, British historians David d’ Avray and Peter Ghosh and German historian Joachim Radkau, on Max Weber’s work and its relation to historical writing.
Max Weber (* 21 April 1864, † 14 June 1920) is one of the most prestigious social theorists in recent history. Many of his academic works are modern classics. Even 100 years after his death, his books are still read, edited, translated and interpreted. In recent years a number of biographies have shed new light on Weber’s life and work.
The discussion was recorded and the podcast can be found here. Podcast: Max Weber’s work and its relation to historical writing (DHI London) weiterlesen
