The article is a translation into Russian of another piece of “Theory of Communicative Action” by J. Habermas. Habermas continues his critical examination of M. Weber’s theory of rationalization by discerning in this third section the logic of Weberian analysis of modernization and showing that it is Weber’s initial point of analysis that allows Weber to approach modernization as societal rationalization. Habermas argues that Weber’s analysis of modernization does not exhaust the explanatory potential of his own theory. If we call to mind the systematic construction that underlies the last, we will finally have to suggest that path of rationalization taken in Europe is just a particular historical form of rationalization which Weber, however, equates with rationalization of society as such.
