This paper shall deal with the actuality of Weber’s methodological conception.
Contrary to frequent interpretations that declare classical sociology legacy obsolete, without offering a valid argument for these qualifications, Weber’s methodological conception is presented as a fruitful heuristic framework for addressing the key aporias of modern sociology (e.g. dispute between modernists and postmodernists, relationship of action and structure / subject and object, advantages and disadvantages associated with the usability of qualitative / interpretive and quantitative / positivist approach in the study of social phenomena and processes. In this context, Weber’s intellectual legacy should not be understood as a set of ideas that can be reactualized or rejected as needed via model of analogy, but rather as a theoretical and methodological active content that many sociologists (and not only them) use even today as a model and inspiration to understand contemporary social phenomena and processes.
