9780872206656: The Vocation Lectures (Hackett Classics)

Originally published separately, WeberÂís "Science as a Vocation" and "Politics as a Vocation" stand as the classic formulations of his positions on two related subjects that go to the heart of his thought: the nature and status of science and its claims to authority; and the nature and status of political claims and the ultimate justification for such claims. Together in this volume, these newly translated lectures offer an ideal point of entry into WeberÂís central project: understanding how, as Weber put it, "in the West alone there have appeared cultural manifestations [that seem to] go in the direction of universal significance and validity."

About the Author:

Tracy B. Strong is Professor of Political Science, University of California, San Diego.

David Owen is Reader in Politics and Deputy Director of the Centre for Post-Analytic Philosophy, University of Southampton.

Rodney Livingstone, Emeritus Professor of German, University of Southampton, has translated works by Marx, Lukács, Benjamin, and Adorno.

Review:

[Owen and Strong] beautifully weave together the historical, philosophical, academic and personal circumstances that shaped Weber's world-view and these efforts reward the reader with a nuanced and thorough understanding. . . . Students, and even established academics, will benefit tremendously from this new edition. Rating: ***** --Jeffrey Roberts, University of Kent, in Political Studies Review
