Thus, Weber saw history as an intricate multilateral process of the conflict on several fronts. He was opposed to simplistic notions of evolutionary steps, or other elegant patterns that theorists have always tried to impose in its interpretation of the complexities of the historical reality. Even this is enough to cast doubt on the thesis that Weber saw the rationalization as a "major trend" stories. Whether Weber was historicist in this case, if believed, that there are no general laws, but only historical features that distinguish principles from each era followed? Sometimes it does seem Weber historicist, especially early in his career when he wrote primarily methodological notes. But this approach is not compatible with sociology, at least, with sociology as a generalizing science. But in reality, Weber kept out of the historicism. He subdued sociology task demonstration of the elements of which history is made. For this purpose, he created the theory of ideal types, abstract model of bureaucracy, class, markets and the like, which are passed on aspects of a complex historical reality. At the same time to understand the various aspects of social phenomena had to use several different ideal types at the same time.
