Was hat Max Weber mit Kātib Čelebi zu tun? Ein Annäherungsversuch an Gottfried Hagen


Zemmin, Florian (2014). Was hat Max Weber mit Kātib Čelebi zu tun? Ein Annäherungsversuch an Gottfried Hagen. Asiatische Studien, 68(2):549-556.

Abstract

This article responds to Gottfried Hagen’s extensive review (see Der
Islam 2/2013) of my book Islamische Verantwortungsethik im 17. Jahrhundert. Ein
weberianisches Verständnis der Handlungsvorstellungen Kātib Čelebis (1609–
1657) . Whilst I benefitted greatly from some of Hagen’s critical remarks and historical
elucidations, his review not only misstates crucial passages of my book
but also largely disregards its main objective, which is to develop a systematic
model for understanding Kātib Čelebi’s ethical stance. Besides reiterating crucial
arguments ignored and rectifying central aspects misrepresented in Hagen’s
review, I here ask how the more fundamental misunderstandings – exceeding
differences in theoretical positions or empirical observations – between the author’s
intentions and the reviewer’s reception may be explained. Gottfried Hagen’s
historiographical perspective on Kātib Čelebi diverges from my sociological take
on the same subject matter to the extent that both perspectives are struggling
to enter into dialogue. Such dialogue, however, remains highly desirable so as
to complement a historical reconstruction of Kātib Čelebi’s life and times with a
systematic, theoretically grounded understanding of his views.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
