ABSTRACT
The 'Old manuscript' previously known as the latter part(s) of Economy and Society, is ongoingly published as the Complete Works of Max Weber (MWG) Volume 1/22. However, the present MWG editorial policy is based on serious flaws, which will tear the remaining 'torso' ('Old manuscript') into 'Five Disjointed Body-Parts without a Head'. Instead, both from textual facts (such as the forward/backward references) and from situational facts, it should be concluded that: (1) Even though its publication was abandoned, the 'Old manuscript' was nearly completed, and has high internal coherence; (2) The 'Old manuscript' should be sorted in the order of Weber's 'Disposition of 1914', placing the article 'Some Categories for Interpretative Sociology' at the start, as the correct 'head' of the 'torso'.
