According to editor Dreijmanis (social science, U. Bremen), Weber's Myers-Briggs Type Indicator describes the notes sociologist as an extrovert with a strong inclination toward the intellectual, tendencies that generated these essays on academia, including the famous "Science as a Vocation" and "Politics as a Vocation." Dreijmanis provides other contextual information on Weber, including insights into the illness that kept Weber from much involvement with academic life, and describes the sociologist's intellectual environment. Independent translator Wells captures the essence of Weber in his translations, many of which appear for the first time in English, and includes articles on academic freedom in German universities, pedagogy, professionalism, the effects of social democrats in teaching positions, on the work and thought of contemporary professors, and on the worth of professional and academic organizations. Weber's commentary on the Althoff system is particularly interesting, as is Weber's declaration of withdrawal from the Allemannia Fraternity. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
