Overview: Max Weber’s Complete Writings on Academic and Political Vocations
This is the first edition in any language of all of Weber’s writings on academic and political vocations.
Weber made many significant interpretations of both academic and political vocations in his two lectures on "Science as a Vocation" (Wissenschaft als Beruf, 1917) and "Politics as a Vocation" ( Politik als Beruf, 1919), as well as in a series of newspaper articles written between 1908 and 1920. Since these writings are of more than historical interest, there was a need to bring them all together in a single volume. Newly translated and annotated, this collection comprises both lectures plus 32 articles which Weber wrote on academia. Most of these have not been translated before.
In the introduction, Prof. Dreijmanis relates the academic and political vocations to each other conceptually, showing that there is considerable overlap and some convergence: the need for passion, an "inward calling," as well as career insecurity in both vocations.
