Abstracts
The author deals with the aspects of Weber’s theory of rationalization. Thus, the concept of rationality, types of activity, the notion of bureaucracy, etc., are analysed. For Weber, rationalization represents the essence of capitalism. It affects all Subsystems of the social system of late capitalist countries. Weber’s attitude towards the process of rationalization has been positive since modern industrial society presupposes this process in order to be efficient. Weber, however, has had in mind the other side of this process - dehumanisation. George Ritzer has also pointed out the problem of dehumanisation and alienation as negative effects of rationalization. Croatian administration is unprofessional, massive, corrupted etc. and as such it does not correspond to the Weberian ideal of rational and efficient administration. The process of its transformation and rationalization has only started.
