Description

The social role of intellectuals was a pervasive motif in Weber's thought, particularly in his works on religion and politics. Comprehensively examining and extending Weber's work on the subject, Sadri provides a new perspective on the intelligentsia and its role in society. He also provides a synthetic typology of intellectuals which spans both Eastern and Western traditions. Culling Weber's scattered observations on the subject, Sadri lays a theoretical foundation for a Weberian sociology of intellectuals, making it a valuable resource for scholars interested in the reflections of this great thinker.show more

Review quote

One of the merits of Sadri's account is the way in which he relates Weber's interpretation of the intellectuals to his underlying philosophical ideas. * Peter Lassman, The European Legacy, Vol.5, No.5, 2000. *show more
