Weber himself felt an identity with the Historical School, referring to ‘we disciples of German Historical School’ (1971: 16). In the prefatory essay as the editor of a new journal he referred to the rivalry of 41 42 Liberal Aspects of the Historical School: Max Weber the two schools, and made an effort to clarify the logical relationship of both schools (1969: 85–95). His effort resulted in the construction of ‘ideal type’, which would contribute to the understanding of the regularity, and so of the causality of individuality of the phenomena.

If this interpretation 18 Carl Menger: Towards a New Image of the Founder is justified, it means that the two sets of lectures are not insignificantly opposed to each other on the problem of state intervention; however, his arguments in the Vienna lectures are concerned almost exclusively with state revenue, which makes it difficult to hazard a good guess about his thoughts on the possible ways to use money for various purposes.
