Currently, most of Weber’s work is still one that lends itself to various interpretations and, thus, it equally lends itself to countless debates. Weber has been criticized for various reasons: lack of a full understanding of the Protestant doctrine; a faulty interpretation of the Catholic doctrine and for the idea of various forms of capitalism; his ignorance of non-religious intellectual sources; the use of incorrect and incomplete statistics, and for his overgeneralization. When important critical approaches arise, they shouldn’t suggest just new reflection on the way we understand some determinisms in human action, but they should also stimulate future research for reinterpret the scientific knowledge. Our empirical analysis, although it only touched one of the avenues of scientific research, seems to prove that there is more than just saying Weber was clearly wrong.
