Max Weber is not only celebrated as a founder of modern social science but also for his view that modern capitalism was the achievement of a uniquely Western rationalism. His celebrated study of China argued that its legal institutions and ethical and religious culture had prevented a similar development there. But he also drew on his knowledge of China in developing his ideas of bureaucracy, authority and legitimacy. 

CCPN Global is working with CCS, SOAS, Weber Studies Group, BSA, and the Journal of Max Weber Studies in organizing this conference.

It was successfully held on 5-6 September 2013, at SOAS, University of London. See a photo report 'China, the West and the Future of Global Capitalism - or Not?'    More...
