Yale University Press

This chapter studies the main themes among Weber, Mannheim, and Schumpeter. The first is the rationalization perspective, where they believe that capitalism is the most relevant driving force behind the dissemination of the conviction that people have the ability to control and explain the events that happen around us. Next is the belief that the political domain is constantly contracting, followed by the idea of ethical pluralism and the thought that politics is a peaceful means to continue the conflicts of social interests and ideas. The last section serves as an overview to Weber, Mannheim, and Schumpeter's answers to the question on how social progresses can be intervened in.

Keywords:   rationalization, capitalism, political domain, ethical pluralism, politics, social progress
