Max Weber on Political Liberalism

I’ve written about liberal political thought in Max Weber for LiberalVision recently.

Points covered include

His movement from conservatism to liberalism

The economic and social conditions of liberty.

Understanding of democracy in relation to realism and competition with regard to power

Discussion of German situation

Why his understanding of charismatic leadership is at least as much to do with democratic leaders like Abraham Lincoln and William Gladstone, as it is to with authoritarianism.
