Max Weber on Capitalism - Dictionary of Arguments

Habermas IV 463
Capitalism/Weber/Habermas: in capitalist enterprises, the conspicuous achievement is not the institutionalization of wage labor, but the profit-oriented and rational accounting-based orderliness of economic decisions.
"Spirit of capitalism"/Weber: is the mentality that characterizes the purpose-rational economic action of early capitalist entrepreneurs.
WeberVsMarx: While Marx regards the mode of production as the phenomenon in need of explanation, and examines the accumulation of capital as the new mechanism of system integration, Weber learns the investigation into the reversal of the polarity of economy and state administration to purpose-rational orientations for action. This is about social integration.
Habermas: Marx assumes problems of the system integration and Weber problems of social integration.
Habermas IV 464
The learning capacities acquired by individuals or groups are incorporated into the interpretation system of society through exemplary learning processes.
