DE CARVALHO FILHO, Juarez Lopes. Religion, education and the economy in Max Weber. Civitas, Rev. Ciênc. Soc. [online]. 2014, vol.14, n.3, pp.540-555.  Epub 09-Mar-2020. ISSN 1984-7289.

This paper proposes to relate religion, education and the economy in Max Weber. Despite not having a specific written work on education, it is possible to read texts like Confucianism and Taoism as an outline of ideal types of education, present in any training system. Weber has articulated these types of education with the types of (rational-legal, traditional and charismatic) legitimate political as well as religious domination. Each type of education develops in students a culture, a conduct of life, or the qualities befitting a type of political and religious domination. These elements of the ideal types of education articulated a religious culture play an important role in the formation of economic systems, especially in a capitalist culture. As demonstrated in Weber's Protestant ethic and the “spirit” of Capitalism, there is a real adaptation of a religious (ascetic) education to capitalism and its culture.

Palavras-chave : Confucian education; Ascetic education; Capitalist culture; Conduct of life.
