Economy and society: the last findings about the "great work" of Max Weber

With the new issue of Economy and society in the listings of Max Weber-Gesamtausgabe (MWG), some objective questions dating back to its controversial beginnings have arisen, the principal one being whether the essays gathered under this title form in fact a unitary work, that is, a coherently unitary one. As an inevitable corollary of such critical uncertainty, it has been equally questioned if a work with this composition of texts, based on such differently dated and spaced originals, can still be seen as "the main work" of Weber.
