Max Weber’s Sciences as a Vocation 100 years on: Context and continuing Significance

Acaba de aparecer en Sociológica (International Journal for Sociological Debate) una sección especial a 100 años de ‘La Ciencia como Vocación’ de Max Weber. La sección, editada por Paul du Gay y José Ossandón, presenta dos excelentes artículos en que los historiadores de las ideas Keith Tribe e Ian Hunter re-visitan el contexto y las interpretaciones de la famosa charla de Weber. Incluye además un breve ensayo introductorio en que los editores se preguntan sobre la relevancia de la charla de Weber para la práctica sociológica hoy y un comentario final de Du Gay. Los artículos están disponibles y de libre accesso acá: https://sociologica.unibo.it/. De possible interés el debate en el mismo número de Sociologica en que muy connotados investigadores (por ejemplo, Abbott, Swedberg, Bearman, Czarniawska, DiMaggio, Fourcade, Suchman) discuten sus heurísticas o métodos para descubrir nuevas ideas.
