This chapter reviews the analysis on Max Weber's work made by Gary Abraham who details the impact of Weber's social philosophy, and that regnant in liberal German circles, on Weber's methodological categories generally and on his attitudes toward the place of Jews in Germany in particular. Abraham had an excellent guide to Weber's political and academic speeches and correspondence in Marianne Weber's Max Weber: A Biography (1975). Using this work, Abraham tracks Weber's associations with Rickert, Schmoller, Troeltsch, and Harnack.
