From the Paper:

"Max Weber was at first an economic professor, particularly economic history, however he soon was recognized for his sociological ideologies. The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism was written by Max Weber and first published in 1904. In his book, Weber studies the psychological conditions that propelled the development of capitalism and analyses the connection between society's desire for wealth and the spread of Calvinism in post reformed United Kingdom and Europe. Weber's theory of the birth of the spirit of capitalism in western Europe has had a profound effect on the thinking of sociologists and historians since its publication in 1904 (Engerman, para. 2001)."
