(p.43) Chapter 4 Weber's Second Reply to Karl Fischer, 1908
The Protestant Ethic Debate
Liverpool University Press

This chapter contains Weber's reply to Fischer's refute to Weber's reply on Fischer's review on The Protestant Ethic. With an arguably condescending tone, Weber points out that Fisher's line of reasoning lacked knowledge of the subject and was erroneous. Regarding Fischer's argument that Weber failed to consider other motives for shifts in socio-economic positions, Weber counters by explaining that he simply claimed that the influence was significant, but not total. On Fischer's insistence on the use of psychological interpretations, Weber believes that it leads to wrongful assumptions.
