LEPSIUS, M. Rainer. "Economy and society": Max Weber's legacy following the publication of his Complete works (MWG). Tempo soc. [online]. 2012, vol.24, n.1, pp.137-145. ISSN 0103-2070.

The article reviews the current understanding of the set of texts known as Economy and Society, looking to identify the original content, how these texts were edited in previous editions by Marianne Weber and Johannes Winckelmann, and how they have been dealt with in the new edition of the MWG. These aims in mind, the text looks to show how Max Weber himself situated the various texts, including the different versions and phases of conception and composition of the writings. The article then summarizes the main aspects of the works, as evinced in the MWG, as well as the principal fields of discussion opened up for research, especially in economic sociology.

Keywords : Max Weber; Max Weber Gesamtausgabe; Economy and society; Economic sociology; Economic history.
