Huff provides a rare, full-scale study of the origins and development of Max Weber's methodology which focusses on Weber's neglected early methodological essays that only recently have been translated into English. He explores Weber's writings in light of recent developments in "post-empiricist" philosophy of science, and shows that Weber was well aware of the epistemological foundations of the "descriptive psychology" school, whose intellectual heir was Husserl. It will help scholars and students understand in the broadest sense the issues central to the logic of social scientific explanation, and will appeal to philosophers, sociologists, political scientists as well as scholars of Weber.

About the Author:

Toby E. Huff is professor of sociology at the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth. He is editor of On the Roads to Modernity: Conscience, Science and Civilization--Selected Writings by Benjamin Nelson and the author of Max Weber and the Methodology of the Social Sciences and The Rise of Early Modern Science: Islam, China, and the West.

Review:

"Toby Huff's important papers on Max Weber exhibit the kind of depth and penetration that one desires—indeed, needs—in treatments of Weber's methodology and they are a distinctive contribution to sociological theory."

—Robert Bierstedt, Commonwealth Professor of Sociology, University of Virginia

"A very thorough study of the background in the German intellectual— especially philosophical—discussion of that period.... A very striking picture."

—Talcott Parsons, Sociological Inquiry

"They are a breath of fresh air, so detailed, historically accurate,... and so imbued with importance for contemporary controversies in social science."

—Jeffrey Alexander, professor of sociology, University of California, Los Angeles
