Chair: Andreas Gestrich
Discussants: David d’ Avray, Peter Ghosh and Joachim Radkau
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.
In commemoration of Max Weber’s 150th anniversary, the German Historical Institute hosts a discussion 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.
