‘I first met Max Weber through the writings of the Greek-French philosopher Cornelius Castoriadis, whom I’ve been studying for years. Fascinated by the rigor of Weber’s way of thinking and the significance he used to attribute to the idea of “intellectual integrity”, I decided to study his work in depth. Finally, I dedicated my PhD Thesis to a comparative approach of Weber and Castoriadis, inspired by their common emphasis on meaning (Sinn) as a constitutive element of the social world.
In this context, I have edited a collected volume for the anniversary of the 100 years from Weber’s death, in which Weber scholars such as Dirk Kaesler, Béatrice Hibou, Kari Palonen, Sven Eliaeson and Aurélien Berlan participated, while in 2022 my book on Weber’s argumentation regarding the impossibility of a rational foundation of values will be published’.
