The Max-Weber-Kolleg meets for its annual away day

This year, the MWK fellows meet for their annual away day at Neudietendorf, between Erfurt and Gotha, Germany.

(Bettina Hollstein, Jörg Rüpke, Hartmut Rosa)

After a short introduction by the director of the MWK, Hartmut Rosa, Uta Tellermann gave a paper on 'economy as culture' to discuss Max Weber and how his ideas impact on today's discourse, particularly in cultural economics. The paper was followed by an intensive discussion on how to relate these concepts.

The late afternoon was spend on the reading and discussing the draft proposal of a major grant application for a SFB (Sonderforschungsbereich) in the area of 'property' ('Eigentum').

Further topics to be dealt with are a number of internal structures and research projects (Fuchs/Renzi on ICAS:MP „Metamorphoses of the Political“, Kleeberg/Mulsow an 'Truth',  Haakonssen/Gango on 'Natural Law'.
