This dissertation seeks to map the academic communities that formed around Weberian thinking in the United States of America. The formation process of these communities went through material issues involving the availability of translations and the construction of collaboration networks, which took place amid debates about the formation of interpretations and intellectual authorities' establishment. The transposition of an intellectual from one intellectual context to another is also the formulation of new academic space; in the American case, Weber was used as one of the great thinkers of the humanities. Among the authors surveyed: Frank Knight (1885-1972), Talcott Parsons (1902-1979), C. Wright Mills (1916-1962), Hans Gerth (1908-1978), and Guenther Roth (1931-2019). We sought to outline the intellectual elements that made up the American intellectual environment before the arrival of Weber's texts, such as exceptionalism, pragmatic philosophy, and the promised land's myth. Explain how these elements facilitated Weberian epistemology's introduction into the American lexicon, especially those that explained a particular American success. Describe how a new type of thinking about Max Weber emerged in the 'new world,' primarily the division between the forms produced by Harvard / Chicago and Wisconsin.
