The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism

Sale price$ 7.99


In his ground-breaking work, nineteenth-century sociologist and political economist Max Weber traces the rise of capitalism to the Calvinist belief in the moral value of work as the result of one’s duty to God and his fellow neighbor. Weber sees this “Protestant work ethic” as foundational to the rise of the standard of living and the progress inherent in the capitalist economic system. Weber’s book remains a must-read for anyone who wishes to truly understand the foundations of societal progress as seen only in the capitalistic system that has raised millions out of poverty, thanks, in part, to the theology and worldview of Protestant Puritans.
