Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the pioneers of modern sociology, Max Scheler (1874-

1928) ranks with Max Weber, Edmund Husserl, and Ernst

Troeltsch as being among the most brilliant minds of his

generation. Yet Scheler is now known chiefly for his

philosophy of religion, despite his groundbreaking work in

the sociology of knowledge, the sociology of emotions, and

phenomenological sociology. This volume comprises some of

Scheler's most interesting work—including an analysis of the

role of sentiments in social interaction, a sociology of

knowledge rooted in global social and cultural comparisons,

and a cross-cultural theory of values—and identifies some of

his important contributions to the discussion of issues at

the forefront of the social sciences today.

Editor Harold J. Bershady provides a richly detailed

biographical portrait of Scheler, as well as an incisive

analysis of how his work extends and integrates problems of

theory and method addressed by Durkheim, Weber, and Parsons,

among others.

Harold J. Bershady, professor of sociology at the University

of Pennsylvania, is the author of Ideology and Social

Knowledge and the editor of Social Class and

Democratic Leadership.
