Abstract

Author(s): Aytu? Zekeriya BOLCAN

Max Weber argues how social norms affect societies, how societies differ from each other, and these differences reach some economic consequences. Especially according to Weber, ethics is a collective statement of motives that cause a human being to assume a specified manner against world relationships by conceiving his/her adoration commitments and obligations. Besides the dogma and theory side of the religion, economic ethics is the aggregate of human being's motives (Antriebe) about his/her pragmatic activities and movements.

Especially according to Weber, ethics is a collective statement of motives that cause a human being to assume a specified manner against world relationships by conceiving his/her adoration commitments and obligations. Besides the dogma and theory side of the religion, economic ethics is the aggregate of human being's motives (Antriebe) about his/her pragmatic activities and movements. In this study, Weber's approach was tested with data collected from the World Values Survey.
