Max Weber on World Views - Dictionary of Arguments

Habermas III 272
World Views/Weber/Habermas: there are internal and external factors for the development of world education. There is an interplay of ideas and interests both at the level of culture and society. (See also Interest/Weber).
In doing so, connections of validity and effect must be separated.
Habermas 275
Development of world views/Weber/Habermas: Questions:
- What are the conflicts that overstrain the structurally limited capacity of interpretation of an existing world view?
- In which socio-structural conflict situations does the theodicy problem typically arise?
- Who are the social carriers of the charismatic implementation or rationalization of a new world view?
Habermas III 276
- In which layers is a new view of the world received and in which sectors is it effective?
- To what extent do new worldviews need to be institutionalized to enable legitimate orders?
- How do the interests of the supporting layers control the selection of world view contents?
Habermas: Weber limits his analysis of the rationalization of worldviews to the point of view of ethization and leaves out the field of science and art.
Habermas III 277
Weber thesis: (according to Habermas): the rationalization of worldviews is a process,
- which is taking place in the same direction in all world religions
- which is radically finished for external reasons only on one tradition line
- so that in the West it releases the structures of consciousness that enable a modern understanding of the world.
