The final chapter is a close examination of Weber's views on historical explanation, historical objectivity and value freedom. The first sections consider Weber's intellectual background, especially the importance of the Methodenstreit between Menger and the historical school of economics. Later sections deal with Weber's views on understanding human actions, ideal types and the limits of naturalism. The final sections examine his views on value freedom and historical objectivity.

Keywords:   Max Weber, Karl Menger, value‐freedom, ideal types, Methodenstreit, cultural sciences, intuitionism
