(p.1) Introduction
The Protestant Ethic Debate

David J. Chalcraft

Liverpool University Press

The introduction presents Weber's The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism. This thesis is perhaps the most renowned and read classical canon of sociological writing, and this introduction traces its publications, relates the replies to the second edition, cites the criticism and shows historical approaches to Weber's thesis. The chapters in this book are significant in accurately mapping out the history of the Protestant Ethic debate and understanding Weber's developing projects and in attempting to create a contemporary Weberian sociology that addresses the cultural and social issues of our times.

Keywords:   canon, Protestant Ethic debate, Weberian sociology, Capitalism, sociological writing
