Religiones y Proceso de Racionalización en Max Weber

by Realino Marra

pp. 20-38 Issue 2 (1,2) – July-December 2014 ISSN (online): 2539/2239 ISSN (print): 2389-8232


The essay is dedicated to Max Weber’s Zwischenbetrachtung (1915-16), a fundamental text for the comprehension of his whole sociology of religion. Marra focuses particularly on the theme, typical of Weber, of the tension between rationalization processes connected to the disenchantment (Entzauberung) and the original magical-religious foundation; he also discusses the relationships which the religions of redemption (Erlösungsreligionen), according to Weber, develop with economy and power.
