Although well-known as the founder of the modern social sciences, Max Weber is less frequently recognized for his contributions to political thought. This book is an original interpretation of his thinking. Sung Ho Kim argues that Weber, one of the great political theorists of modern times, was deeply influenced by some of the most critical questions in modern political thought, especially the question of public citizenship in a mass democracy and civil society as its cultivating ground.

This book is a fresh interpretation of one of the greatest political and social thinkers of the modern era--Max Weber. He is well-known as the founding father of the modern social sciences; less frequently recognized is his contribution to the modern political thought. Kim argues that Weber's political thought was deeply informed by some of the most critical questions in modern political thought, especially the question of public citizenship in a mass democracy and civil society as its cultivating ground.Review:
"Kim's book is an erudite, thoroughly researched, and insightful rereading of Weber. It is also highly relevant to contemporary democratic theory." Perspectives on Political Theory
"Sung Ho Kim has produced an outstanding revision of Max Weber's political thought within the context of Weber's work on the sociology of religion."
Leonard Seabrooke, The Review of Politics

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2006. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This book is an in-depth interpretation of Max Weber as a political theorist of civil society. On the one hand, it reads Weber s ideas from the perspective of modern political thought, rather than the modern social sciences; on the other, it offers a liberal assessment of this complex political thinker without attempting to apologize for his shortcomings. Through an alternative reading of Weber s religious, epistemological and political writings, the book shows Weber s concern with public citizenship in a modern mass democracy and civil society as its cultivating ground. Kim argues Weber s political thought, thus recast, was deeply informed by Kant, Hegel, Nietzsche and other German political thinkers and also reveals an affinity to the liberal-republican tradition best represented by Mill and Tocqueville. Kim has effectively resuscitated Weber as a political thinker for our time in which civic virtues and civil society have once again become one of the dominant issues.
