  1. Theory in Weberian Marxism: Patterns of Critical Social Theory in Lukács and Habermas.Harry F. Dahms - 1997 - Sociological Theory 15 (3):181-214.
    For Weberian Marxists, the social theories of Max Weber and Karl Marx are complementary contributions to the analysis of modern capitalist society. Combining Weber's theory of rationalization with Marx's critique of commodity fetishism to develop his own critique of reification, Georg Lukacs contended that the combination of Marx's and Weber's social theories is essential to envisioning socially transformative modes of praxis in advanced capitalist society. By comparing Lukacs's theory of reification with Habermas's theory of communicative action as two theories in (...)

    From Creative Action to the Social Rationalization of the Economy: Joseph A. Schumpeter's Social Theory.Harry F. Dahms - 1995 - Sociological Theory 13 (1):1-13.

    In utopian/science fiction literature, comprehensive knowledge is a familiar motif that also inspires recent policies to screen society through surveillance. In the late 20th century, a digital archive promised to facilitate quick access to abundant information and effective strategies to confront myriad challenges. Yet, today, the scale and scope of information accumulation in national and corporate repositories is reaching proportions whose intelligent processing excedes human capabilities, and triggering a shift in focus from dumb repository to artificial intelligence. Processing such accumulation (...)
