  1. J. I. Hans Bakker Says:

    Thank you for posting my article about “The Weber-Rachfahl Debate: Calvinism and Capitalism in Holland” published in a somewhat obscure place, the Michigan Sociological Review, and therefore not well known, even to many sociologists.
    It is also useful to post Stephen Kalberg’s book, which is a good overview. I disagree with Kalberg here and there, but by and large he offers a rich introduction to comparative historical sociology (CHS) today.
    CHS is very useful for psychoanalytic investigation of all kinds of topics. I believe that setting ideas in a CHS context often clarifies a great deal. Things that seem obscure when we do not take into account CHS become much clearer when we shed some CHS light on the topic.
    For example, post-Enlightenment European Judaism can be better understood using a CHS perspective, whether that is Weberian, Neo-Weberian, or something else.
