One of Max Weber's contemporaries described him as "a child of the Enlightenment born too late" whose work is a "vitriolic attack on religion." Subsequent Weber scholarship has largely affirmed this valuation of Weber and characterized his scholarship as a manifestation of the very disenchantment that Weber describes. In The Postmodern Significance of Max Weber's Legacy, Basit Koshul challenges this idea by showing Weber to be a postmodern thinker far ahead of his time. Koshul's reading demonstrates that Weber implicitly bridged the religion vs. science divide and offers us new directions in Weber scholarship.
