This volume presents the German text of Talcott
Parsons‘ doctoral dissertation draft, written in German and
now translated into English. This work reflects Parsons‘
strong interest in societal explanations of capitalism,
which he found in the works of Werner Sombart and Max Weber
during his study years in Heidelberg. For Parsons, studying
the „spirit of capitalism“ in the late 1920s meant the
beginning of a long career in sociology. In their
introductory texts the translators offer an insight into the
historical context in which this work had been written.
