  • Download Max Weber-Herrschaft und Demokratie bei Max Weber: Formen by Gökcen Medik PDF

    By Gökcen Medik

    Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2011 im Fachbereich Politik - Politische Theorie und Ideengeschichte, observe: 1,7, Universität Hamburg (Sozialwissenschaften), Veranstaltung: Herrschaft und Demokratie bei Max Weber (1864-1920), Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Die Aktualität Max Webers ist ungebrochen. Gerade heut, in einer Zeit dramatischer gesellschaftlicher Umbrüche, stellt sich die Frage von Macht und Legitimität mit Vehemenz. Die Ereignisse in Nordafrika und in der arabischen Welt demonstrieren eindringlich, dass offenbar ein Funke reichen kann, der eine Lawine ungeahnten Ausmaßes ins Rollen bringt.

Mehr noch: die demokratischen Staaten und die in ihnen gepflegten Verkehrsformen scheinen zu einem guten das erstrebte Vorbild der derzeit Revoltierenden zu sein. Ihre bisherige Herrschaft hat jeden Kredit verspielt und wird von der Bevölkerung so sehr gehasst, dass sie unter Einsatz des eigenen Lebens deren Beseitigung, kurz: einen Umsturz, eine Revolution betreiben.

Karl Jaspers, einer seiner Schüler, schrieb noch 1958 über ihn: „Er struggle der größte Deutsche unseres Zeitalters.“ Karl Löwith charakterisierte Max Weber als einen Menschen, dessen Brust die extremsten Gegensätze beherbergte und mit denen er dennoch zu leben verstand. Max Weber lehnte jeden Kult um seine individual ab und hielt es für entscheidend, sich
