This talk explores the questions about women's rights and sexuality that informed modern understandings of religion. Marianne Weber, wife of well-known sociologist of religion Max Weber, defined central categories related to the effect of religious institutions and legal codes on the subordination and empowerment of women, and she broke new ground in exploring the status of women in Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. Lori K. Pearson is the Chair of Religious Studies at Carleton College. She is a specialist in the history of Christian theology with particular interests in modern philosophy of religion, social theory, race, and feminist thought. Her research has focused on theories of tradition, and on concepts of religion, modernity, and the secular in nineteenth century-Germany. She is author of Beyond Essence: Ernst Troeltsch as Historian and Theorist of Christianity (2008) and co-editor of The Future of the Study of Religion (2004). Her current book project, which this talk is about, uses the work of Marianne Weber (wife of Max Weber) to explore the ways in which cultural and political debates about women's rights informed early 20th-century theories of religion, social order, and secularization in fin-de-siècle Germany.

Gesprek met Marianna Weber over het hoe en wat
Karl Emil Maximilian "Max" Weber (21 April 1864 – 14 June 1920) was a German sociologist, philosopher, jurist, political economist and the husband of Marianne Schnitger. His ideas profoundly influenced social theory and social research. Weber is often cited, with Émile Durkheim and Karl Marx, as among the three founders of sociology. Weber was a key proponent of methodological antipositivism, arguing for the study of social action through interpretive (rather than purely empiricist) means, based on understanding the purpose and meaning that individuals attach to their own actions. Unlike Durkheim, he did not believe in monocausality and rather proposed that for any outcome there can be multiple causes.
Foundations of Modern Social Thought (SOCY 151) Max Weber wrote his best-known work after he recovered from a period of serious mental illness near the turn of the twentieth century. After he recovered, his work transitioned from enthusiastically capitalist and liberal in the tradition of Adam Smith and John Stuart Mill to much more skeptical of the down-sides of modernization, more similar to the thinking of Nietzsche and Freud. In his first major work, The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism, Weber argues that the Protestant faith, especially Luther's notion of "calling" and the Calvinist belief in predestination set the stage for the emergence of the capitalist spirit. With his more complex understanding of the causes of capitalism, Weber accounts for the motivations of capitalists and the spirit of capitalism and rationalization in ways that Marx does not. 00:00 - Chapter 1.
