United Kingdom – Deputy Director of Global Policy Institute, London.
Research area: Weber as an economist.
‘Now we have the MWG in its totality the task is to show its explanatory value for today’s societal transformations. An interesting intellectual exercise would be to present the framework/Inhalte of the Grundriß für Sozialökonomik and try and replace its authors with social scientists writing today.
I recently translated Weber’s ‘The Future Form of the German State’, which he wrote at the end of November 1918. It’s an incredible piece of analysis and a set of proposals. It set me thinking about the British state and its institutional structure, which at the moment is in serious need of renewal. So I’m working on a book proposal ‘Recasting the United Kingdom’. I edit (with a lot of help from reviewers and the board) the journal Max Weber Studies, which is always on the lookout for submissions from early career scholars.’
