7. The “Spirit” of Capitalism in China the doubts raised by different scholars and helps to clarify Weber from a historian’s perspective, arguing that Weber’s Thesis can stand up to rigorous testing. In general, discussions of Weber’s Thesis in the last few years have not gone beyond the scope of analysis provided by Weber’s Protestant Ethic: Origins, Evidence, Contexts, a volume edited by H. Lehmann and G. Roth (1993). The simplified Chinese character version was published in 2001. See the debate between Chang (1995) and Ku (1999) for issues around Weber’s methodology in this respect.

10 The lack of rational science and technology. 28 The “Spirit” of Capitalism in China 11 The lack of rationally organized enterprises. 12 The lack of a rational system in accounting and book-keeping. 13 The lack of a method to direct daily lives that is unique to salvation religions (such as inner-worldly asceticism). 11 These are the major elements pointed out unequivocally by Weber.

36 The “Spirit” of Capitalism in China This being the case, does the statement “specialists without spirit, sensualists without heart” predict the future outlook of Chinese capitalism? Starting with Weber’s questions and after a series of investigations, the preliminary answer must be that China has not manifested an ethos at the economic ethic level that is commensurate with its transition to capitalism. All one can say is that China has once again demonstrated its trait of the “ethic of world adaptation,” assimilating market mechanisms at the institutional level yet lacking the core qualities of modern citizenship at the level of action and behavior, including the fight for basic human rights such as freedom of speech, freedom of association, and freedom of religion, and thus also lacks the right to run for political office, lobby on policies, and monitor the government.
