By Max Weber

L. a. ciencia como profesión, originariamente una conferencia pronunciada por Max Weber en 1917 y publicada como libro en 1919, plantea los angeles cuestión del sentido de los angeles ciencia como trabajo profesional para el individuo. El autor se pregunta si l. a. ciencia contemporánea ―inmersa en un inevitable proceso de especialización― da respuesta a los angeles pregunta más importante con los angeles que se encuentra el ser humano: cómo debe vivir, qué debe hacer. ¿Puede los angeles ciencia fundamentar los valores últimos con los que los hombres organizan su vida? A pesar de su respuesta negativa, Weber invita a su audiencia de estudiantes a que no rehúyan mirar de frente las consecuencias paradójicas del proceso de racionalización moderno y estén a l. a. altura de las «exigencias de cada día».
