Max Weber (1864–1920):
Jurist, Economist and Sociologist

Max Weber-Gesamtausgabe (MWG)

[On behalf of the Committee for Social and Economic History of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities

Edited by Horst Baier, Gangolf Hübinger, M. Rainer Lepsius †, Wolfgang J. Mommsen †, Wolfgang Schluchter, Johannes Winckelmann †]

Published in German

The Max Weber-Gesamtausgabe contains Max Weber's published and previously unpublished texts with the exception of his excerpts, marginalia or editorial comments on the texts of others. Reports written by others on Weber's speeches, his contributions to discussions and his lectures have only been included if there are no accounts of these by the author himself.

If there is more than one version of a text, all of the versions have been included. Those editions of Weber's texts for which he did not give his approval to print have only been incorporated if the editor concerned was in possession of manuscripts which are no longer available. A concordance containing the hitherto most commonly-used editions has been added to each volume.

The Max Weber-Gesamtausgabe is divided into three sections:

Section I: Writings and Speeches
Section II: Letters
Section III: Lectures and Transcripts of Lectures
