Zum Detektieren und zum Nachweis von Textstellen fremder Provenienz am Beispiel von Vorlesungsnotizen Max Webers. Editorische Miszelle

Sophia Krebs and Ulrich Rummel


While working on the edition of Max Weber’s lecture notes on Praktische Nationalökonomie we have identified passages that were unlike the others. In some of these passages, Weber did not reference his sources at all; or if he did give references, he sometimes did so incorrectly. The difficulty was identifying those text parts with criteria beside intuition. In this miscellany, we describe how we found valid indicators that aim to assist editors with identifying such passages.
