Download Fachmenschenfreundschaft: Studien zu Troeltsch und Weber by Friedrich Wilhelm Graf PDF

By Friedrich Wilhelm Graf

Der Band versammelt Studien zu zwei der faszinierendsten Forscherpersönlichkeiten des zwanzigsten Jahrhunderts. Beide haben in ihrer gemeinsamen Heidelberger Zeit ein religionssoziologisches Forschungsprogramm entwickelt, das sich der examine der „Kulturbedeutung“ der faith, speziell protestantischer Frömmigkeit widmete. Das gemeinsame Interesse an einer analytischen Erschließung der „Lebensmacht“ faith führte Max Weber und Ernst Troeltsch jedoch zu unterschiedlichen und konkurrierenden Theorieprogrammen. Während Weber religiösen Wertorientierungen keine überindividuell normative gesellschaftliche Funktion mehr zuerkannte, suchte Troeltsch ethische Bestände des Christentums auf moderne gesellschaftliche Problemlagen hin zu reformulieren. Die Beiträge des Bandes gehen diesen Konstellationen nach. So werden die komplexen Bezüge Webers zur zeitgenössischen Theologie und seine impliziten theologischen Werturteile in der Protestantischen Ethik beschrieben, die Besonderheit der Troeltsch’schen Religionstheorie und seiner Kulturgeschichte des Christentums vorgestellt. Auch geht es um die biographischen und werkgeschichtlichen Beziehungen und wechselseitigen Einflüsse dieser Fachmenschenfreundschaft. Daneben werden zahlreiche bisher unbekannte Quellen ediert.
