(p.41) Chapter 3 Karl Fischer's Reply to Weber, 1908
The Protestant Ethic Debate
Liverpool University Press

This chapter presents Fischer's reply to Weber's refute to his review of The Protestant Ethic. According to Fischer, Weber's response missed the heart of the issue. Fischer denies Weber's assumptions such as the connection between religious confessions and the socio-economic position. Furthermore, Fischer claims that Weber's methodology was one-sided and that one cannot experiment on history using the motives of past actors to draw a conclusion, one must use psychological interpretations.

Keywords:   Weber, religious confessions, socio-economic positions, Weber's methodology, psychological interpretations
