Protestant ethics of Max Weber: Origins, justification

  • Vira Serhiyko

Abstract

The thesis that Protestantism in general, and Calvinism in particular, are in some particularly close relationship with capitalism, just as it existed between capitalism and feudalism, has become a common accepted truth of historical interpretation, despite the modifications that this theory has undergone since Max Weber (1864-1920) first formulated it.
