Show Summary Details


The Weberian interpretation regards the assertion of the absolute transcendence of God before all creatures in which the framework is located as the vocational calling and the synthesis of work. Also Weber's interpretation of mysticism determined more accurate reasons for the difference between mysticism and fully unfolded rational conduct. On the other hand, the method of inner worldly asceticism is in the dominion over the theological, systematic explanation of the given revelation of analysis on internal relations and coherent deduction for practical action. However, the theological is manifested as the space of full presence of the political deforming spirit of modern politics. Furthermore, the spirit of contemporary socio-economic formation ought to be investigated in the insuperable difference constituted by political theology and inner worldly asceticism. This spirit is historically determined, and can be easily clarified.
