Comparative analysis of economic theory of Karl Marx and max weber
Karl Marx and Max Weber are two genius of their time, who were engaged in propounding the Laws and Principles in Social Science which would be a basis of analysis for the ever changing society; especially Europe. The paper argues on the basic tenets of both German Philosophers, who were either the advocates of Religion which was the root cause of misery of the masses or vehemently supported the idea that Religion has been the contributory factor in Economic progress. The paper is an overview based on the assumptions and observations of Marx and Weber and the assumptions of the other Sociologists and Political Thinkers who in the past examined the two Social Scientists. The paper tries to delineate the relationship between Religion and Economy on one hand and on the other hand examines religion as a tool of exploitation. It’s a theoretical and descriptive paper with substantive support of secondary source based references. It is Economic Determinist versus atheist bent and another Social Action Theorist with theistic approach.
