NOBRE, Renarde Freire. Culture and perspectivism in Nietzsche's and Weber's view.Translated byBruno M .N. Reinhardt. Teor. soc. [online]. 2006, vol.2Selected edition, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1518-4471.
This essay draws a comparison of perspectivism in Friederich Nietzsche's (1844-1900) and in Max Weber´s intellectual framework (1864-1920), aiming at demonstrating that, despite the affinity between both authors in thinking culture and life as a profusion of meanings and multiple values, that is, lacking any systemic unity, they radically differ when dealing with perspectivism. Such difference leads to distinct conceptions of knowledge, and critical evaluations concerning the "culture of reason" and history.
