Max Weber on Universal History - Dictionary of Arguments

Habermas III 225
Universal History/Weber/Habermas: For Weber, the main question is: why outside Europe, "neither scientific nor artistic nor national nor economic development should be directed in the direction of rationalization that is characteristic by the Occident". (1)
Western Culture/Weber/Habermas: Weber counts among the achievements of Western rationalism: the modern natural science, the systematic specialized company of the university organized sciences, the printed products produced for the market, the art business, the harmonious music with the work forms of sonata, symphony, opera and orchestra instruments, the use of the linear and air perspective in painting, scientifically systematized jurisprudence, the institutions of formal law and jurisprudence by legally trained civil servants, modern state administration on the basis of a fixed law, predictable private law transactions and the profit-oriented working capitalist enterprise, which requires the separation of budget and business, i.e. requires the legal separation of personal and company assets.
