9780847699216: The Ethics of Modernity

Based on intensive, long-term study, this comparative book traces the role of ethics in the formation of modernity in four Western nations (the US, Britain, France, and Germany). Münch's analysis spans several centuries of historical and political development. While ethics has played a clear role in the West's transition to modernity, he shows that its role has varied substantially and that it has influenced the development of each nation's political and social institutions.

The book begins with an assessment of the ethics of the West in contrast with the East. Münch then looks at the formation of the ethics of modernity from ancient Judaism to ascetic Protestantism and modern secularized culture. The Ethics of Modernity builds a systematic reconstruction of the ethical formation of modernity in its different stages and variations, concluding with current globalization trends.

About the Author:

Richard Münch is professor of sociology at the University of Bamberg, Germany.

Review:

An important endeavor to provide a grand narrative of the trajectory of modernity, in the vein of the sociological master of us all, Weber. This book will be useful in courses looking for recent sociological ventures in comparative-historical analysis, especially if one is looking for an informed Weberian antidote to postmodern or even antimodern nihilism, or to a narrative that priviliges the economic or the political at the expense of the religio-cultural. (American Journal Of Sociology)

Richard Münch's comparative interpretation of the modern impulse in the prototypical Western nations is a remarkable intellectual product. It is an original and imaginative extension of the best of Max Weber's sociology. It is a beautiful appreciation of the simultaneity of the common impulse of the transformation to modernism and the different contexts into which this impulse was thrust. It is a work of high scholarship. But above all it is a book that is true. Münch gets it right in his interpretation of the Western experience, and has it right in his prediction of the continuity of the modernizing impulse into the globalizing world. (Smelser, Neil J.)
