The development of the spirit of capitalism is best understood as part of the development of rationalism as a whole, and could be deduced from the fundamental position of rationalism on the basic problems of life. Capitalism may be indentical with the restraint, or at least a rational tempering, of this irrational impulse. (on the desire for unlimited gain.)

— Max Weber
