Praise

 
“I found Weber’s lectures—the first of which was delivered during the Bolshevik Revolution—a bracing, relevant read. I also appreciated Damion Searls’s approach to translating from the German, ‘skewed towards everyday vocabulary whenever possible’ to reflect the ethos of a popular lecture series.” —Nadia Kalman, Words Without Borders

“The incoherence of modern life could be said to have been Weber’s great subject. Weber used the term Entz­-auberung—‘dis-enchantment’—to describe the way in which science and technology had inevitably displaced magical thinking. . . . His writings anticipate both the rise and fall of the Soviet Union . . . and also the steady, soulless spread of global capitalism.” —Elizabeth Kolbert, The New Yorker
