This event is part of CIDRAL's programme for the 2017/18 academic year, 'Constraints of Creativity'.
Sarah Roddy (University of Manchester) will lead a theory intensive for postgraduate students on the work of Max Weber entitled ‘Money and Religion: Revisiting the Protestant Ethic’.
What is the relationship between economic and religious life? Max Weber’s The Protestant ethic and the spirit of capitalism, a ‘weak collection of strong papers’ first published in 1904-5, and translated into English in 1930, offered one highly influential and much-debated answer to that question. This class will revisit the argument, the influence and the utility of the Weber thesis.
