Title Philosophical genesis of ideal types
Date 1980
Description The conception of ideal types as a method of the synthesis of sociohistorical phenomena was introduced by the German philosopher Wilhelm Dilthey (1883-1911). However, this fact has been largely ignored in the literature. That he was the originator of this notion is, I suppose, of only historical interest. But the philosophical and methodological considerations that generated his contribution are still of substantial and contemporary importance.
