"...this is a highly readable tranlation of Weber's two most famous essays, and provides a good exposition of their major thmes." -- Prof. John Dreijmanis, Max Weber Studies, Vol. 7 No. 1, January 2007. [Owen and Strong] beautifully weave together the historical, philosophical, academic and personal circumstances that shaped Weber's world-view and these efforts reward the reader with a nuanced and thorough understanding... Students, and even established academics, will benefit tremendously from this new edition. Rating: ***** --Jeffrey Roberts, University of Kent, in Political Studies Review


Originally published separately, Weber's "Science as a Vocation" and "Politics as a Vocation" stand as the classic formulations of his positions on two related subjects that go to the heart of his thought: the nature and status of science and its claims to authority; and the nature and status of political claims and the ultimate justification for such claims. Together in this volume, these newly translated lectures offer an ideal point of entry into Weber's central project: understanding how, as Weber put it, "in the West alone there have appeared cultural manifestations [that seem to] go in the direction of universal significance and validity."

5.0 von 5 Sternen MUCH SUPERIOR TO MANY MODERN TEXTS 18. September 2013
Von Yehezkel Dror - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
There is much of importance in the Science as a Vocation essay. But I will concentrate on my own domain, namely the qualities needed from political leaders.
Having studied the German original and later taught the vocation lectures many years ago, still I decided to reread them in a new and much improved translation. I did so while finalizing a manuscript of my own on the qualities of mind required from political leaders in the emerging epoch of metamorphosis.
The text is based on a lecture given before a student organization in Munich in January 1919, with some additions. This context influenced much of the contents. But this was a period of transformation, as is ours (and as was the period of Machiavelli), making some of his comments all the more pertinent.
In particular relevant for our period are, inter alia, the following qualities which Weber demands from those wishing to be political leaders: living for politics and not from it; being fully committed to politics as a "vocation," including in the sense of "calling;" acting according to an ethics of responsibility for consequences, in some relation with an "ethics of commitment," making all of political leadership into an ethical endeavor; being fully mature, in the sense of ability "to scrutinize the realities of life ruthlessly, to withstand them, and to measure up to them inwardly (page 91); understanding the crucial importance of power and force; taking "distance" from issues and oneself; and, on important issues, "reaching the point where he says, `Here I stand, I can do no other'" (page 92).
These and other insights make the Politics as a Vocation text much superior to the vast majority of modern books on the requirements of political leadership. It should be a central text in all teaching and mentoring on political leadership. And at least pages 76-94 require reading and rereading by all politicians and whoever considers choosing politics as his vocation.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Fascinating insight into interbellum Germany 14. Februar 2008
Von J. P. Thulin - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This book contains two lectures given by Max Weber in 1917 and 1918 (two years before his death). The lectures came about as a result of a repeated request from the Universty of Munich.

The lectures centers around two topics, what is required by somebody seriously persuing vocation as a scienctist, and what is the marking of a true politician? This is not a regular essay, it is not divided into chapters, and Weber is not trying to present any theories etc.

I found the lectures to be very interesting, because they show us the thoughts of a great thinker at the end of his life. They contain a lot of observations on life and society in general, many of which are not uplifting. One can really sence here the dark, uncertain and gloomy times that was interbellum Germany. At one point in the politics-lecture, one it is almost eerie to read how close Weber came to predicting the events which were to take place in germany 10 years later.

Not a must have for most people, but for those interested in Weber, interbellum Europe, or great thinkers in general, I would recommend this book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Used this book for my thesis 14. August 2005
Von S. Fotinos - Veröffentlicht auf
The book had a very solid, thorough introduction to the two lectures. It was an excellent preparation for reading Weber, also good for going back to and reading again.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Review of Hackett's Weber, Vocation Lectures 19. Mai 2010
Von Ryan Mease - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Books like this remind me why I love Hackett. This edition of Weber's lectures is given an outstanding introduction and plenty of insightful footnotes. If a better edition exists, I can't imagine what it would look like.
