Compare and contrast Weber’s analysis of scientists, capitalists (and workers), bureaucrats, and/or politicians (in relation to the Protestant ethic).
Key concepts to discuss: vocation; calling; asceticism; rationality and/or rationalization; spirit of capitalism; the Protestant ethic; disenchantment. (All of these concepts need to be discussed for a comprehensive answer.)
Texts you HAVE to discuss: The Protestant Ethic; “Science as a Vocation” + either of the following two: “Bureaucracy” or “Politics as a Vocation.”
You must refer to specific pages.
You HAVE to address Weber’s analysis of scientists AND capitalists. (You can bring in workers). You HAVE to address Weber’s analysis of bureaucrats OR politicians.
Lay out Weber’s overall theorization and concepts (regarding VOCATIONS, which should be central to your response, and rationality).
Discuss how this theorization (and the related concepts) apply to each profession/trade/career you discuss. Where do they overlap? Where do they differ?
You can bring in concepts not included in the “key concepts” list, but you don’t have to.
Regarding the prompt: By “capitalist” we are referring to the big business owners, NOT the middle and lower managers in capitalist firms (Whom weber would count as bureaucrats)
