Further Details
Abstract While in Mexico the translations of Max Weber were little discussed & even less utilized, in the United States, his ideas revolutionized the discipline, fundamentally through the work of Talcott Parsons. This article shows that the scant attention paid to Weber in Mexico was not due as much to the domination of positivism in Mexico & of topics like mestizaje (racial mixing), but rather to the lack of an academic organization able to include Weber in its study plans & of an intermediary capable of convincing people of his work's usefulness for Mexican sociology. Adapted from the source document.
