Weber's approach to social scientific methodology and his comparative historical sociology were important resources that Knight drew upon in his efforts to create a social science that transcended the terms of the neoclassical-institutionalist debate during the 1920s and 1930s. The paper examines Knight's reading of Weber's work and its impact on his effort to balance economic theory with comparative economic history.
