This article traces through Greenfield's work his use of Weber's interpretive social analysis, including Weber's view of the individual unit of analysis, value typologies, methods of comparative history, and the construction and use of analytical ideal typologies. Compared are Greenfield's and Weber's metaphysical assumptions, ontological perspectives, and epistemological frameworks, and their implications for research representative of interpretive or verstehende organizational study.
