From the cover: “What is the conceptual basis of the modern disciplines of economics and sociology? Talcott Parsons hailed the emergence of the Voluntaristic theory of action’, above all, in the work of Max Weber as the breakthrough to a scientific sociology, just as historians of economics acclaim the ‘marginalist revolution’. Simon Clarke argues that these events are connected, that marginalist economics created the possibility of its sociological complement, Weberian sociology.
