The protestant ethic and the spirit of capitalism - by Max Weber[Research paper] by Alice de Rochechouart

2013-06-01

The author was part of the "Alternative Management" third year program in HEC in 2012. She is currently working on a Master in philosophy of religions at the School of Advanced Studies in Social Sciences (EHESS).

This book studies how the protestant ethic and its asceticism contributed to shape and to spread the spirit of modern capitalism. The reformed Protestants believed in predestination, and were looking for the evidence of their divine election in strict labor ethics, where economical profit was the proof that they had been chosen, and where their career was a true calling from God.
