This study is a defence of Max Weber's sociology against the criticisms of academic sociology made by Marxists such as Althusser. It rejects the view that Weber's sociology is bourgeois, subjectivist and individualistic. An examination is made of a major theme in Weber's historical sociology, namely the unintended consequences (fate) of social action. This theme (derived from Nietzsche's critical enquiry into the condition of modern society) is illustrated in a series of chapters on: religion, medicine, law, feudalism, the family and the capitalist economy. A survey of the strengths and weaknesses of the major sociological approaches in the post-war period is also provided. This edition includes a new preface which reviews the scholarship on Weber since 1981, covering topics such as the fall of communism, the demise of Marxist theory and postmodernism.
