On being called to Freiburg, Max Weber was also obligated to lecture on the subject of public economics. This volume opens up to scholars at large the handwritten notes Weber used as memory prompts, providing for the first time the opportunity to understand how and with which emphases Weber mastered the task of teaching a subject foreign to him.
Alongside theoretical and practical national economics, public finance was the third pillar making up the economics curriculum during the 19th century. On being called to Freiburg, Max Weber was also obligated to lecture on the subject of public economics, something he did in 1894/95 and 1896/97. This volume opens up to scholars at large the handwritten notes Weber used as memory prompts, providing for the first time the opportunity to understand how and with which emphases Weber mastered the task of teaching a subject foreign to him. The editors attempt to reconstruct the author's intended train of thought, find out at which points he merely received known subject matter, and locate where Weber's own ideas, indicative of his later sociology of domination and social economics, shine through.
