Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book titled The Destiny of Modern Societies: The Calvinist Predestination of a New Society contains the table of contents. The book is a sociological analysis of the relationship between modern society, in particular America, and Calvinism in the Weberian tradition. While it continues this tradition, it further expands, elaborates on, and goes beyond earlier sociological analyses. The book examines the impact of Calvinism on modern society as a whole, thus extending, elaborating on, and going beyond the previous analyses of the influence of the Calvinist religion only on the capitalist economy. It argues, demonstrates, and illustrates the Calvinist societal &t;predestination&t;, through the Puritan determination, of American society.

Keywords: American society; Calvinism; Calvinist Predestination; New society; Puritanism
