La sexualité, un « concept limite » dans la pensée de Max Weber

Abstract : Sexuality as a “Liniting Concept” in Max Weber’s Thought -- In Max Weber’s writings, sexuality embraces a vast world of opposites: those between the field of the conscious and that of the unconscious; between Judaism and polytheism in ethics; between “Lovers” and “Brothers” in economics. Yet, because sexuality is not a social phenomenon, it was not theorized as such by Max Weber, who circumscribed it by locating it between, on the one hand, the field of instinct, which eschews understanding, and, on the other hand, by the solipsism of lovers, and death.
