This chapter studies Max Weber, who firmly believed in modern values such as pluriformity and individualism. The first section looks at Weber's personal life and intellectual background, before it examines the process of Weber's thinking on democracy and politics and analyzes his philosophy of science. The next section focuses on the basic generalization process, including its two stimulators and manifestation (i.e. the bureaucracy and the capitalist market economy). Finally, the chapter ends with an examination of the political conclusions Weber made with regards to the mounting growth of these two organizational forms.
