Title:Max Weber's Object of Knowledge
Author(s):Howe, Richard Herbert
Department / Program:Sociology
Degree Granting Institution:University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Subject(s):Sociology, Theory and Methods
Abstract:Max Weber's concept of knowledge was derived from Kant's, both directly from his reading of Kant and indirectly through his NeoKantian order of discourse. But Weber's conception of the object of knowledge of his social science--sense and meaning--could not be made to "rhyme" with this Kantian concept of knowledge. This dissertation traces Weber's relationships to Kant and to the NeoKantians, in order then to explicate his concept of knowledge, his conception of the object of knowledge of his social science, and the problematic relationships between them, through the understandings of the principal terms of these conceptions that prevailed in his order of discourse.
