Max Weber was a German economist and a social historian.
in the late 19th and early 20th century.
theories were strongly emphasized on the fact that ethical.
and religious ideas were influences on the development of.
capitalism, ".he concentrated primarily on the connection.
between religious faith and attitudes to economics ".
(Hamilton 152). Critical issues in the American experience.
such as " The place of religion in a secular society" and.
"The question of mission", were reflected in Max Weber's.
ideas and in one of his best-known works, The Protestant.
Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism. .
Max Weber visited United States in the Summer of 1904,.
were he explored the issues of religion. Weber's experience.
in the United States left him an impression on him,.
.the social and economic relevance of the .
interaction between religious [.] conviction.
[.] and social activity, specifically the role.
of belief in the emergence of market-oriented.
industrial capitalism (Mommsen, Wolfgang vol. 69). .
This is the answer to the question of whether or not values.
can be separated from religion. Values and religion could.
go hand in hand, " Weber reasoned as follows: Puritans.
believed that worldly success was a sign of being chosen as.
one of God's elect." (Melamed and Minkoff 132). Being.
successful is a value for most people, but for some people.
this value can also reflect their religious beliefs, like.
Max Weber also states that certain religions might.
dominate higher work places:.
.the fact that business leaders and owners of.
capital, as well as the higher grades of skilled.
labour, and even more the higher technically and.
commercially trained personnel of modern .
enterprises, are overwhelmingly Protestant. .
(Weber, 35). .
This exemplifies how Max Weber felt about occupational.
values and religion. He is saying that a person's religious.
values dictates the type of job he or she will poses.
