The critical inefficiency of slave-based agriculture, he asserts, was not caused by purely economic considerations. There was, indeed, a crisis in the reproduction of slave labor, but this occurred because Roman "custom" prevented male slave workers from having monogamous relationships. " True, unfree labor continued to be employed in post-Roman Carolingian times, yet this later feudal economy did not suffer from a reproduction crisis; to the contrary, it marked the earliest beginnings of modern economic life.
21 t Upon this reconstruction of the nature of social action, Weber builds in these first writings of his maturity a resolutely multidimensional understanding of collective order. '' 22 Every action, to the contrary, also confronts the material order, an order associated with externality, with "means," and with struggle. " 23 t Just as the instrumental dimension accompanies every more idealized motivation, so does this material order permeate every dimension of normative constraint. ' " 25 Order is multidimensional.
Once again, this distinction must be understood in terms of Weber's concern for presuppositional synthesis. The distinction turns upon the following paradox: How can the simple observation of action be enough to achieve "understanding" if every action involves an internal component that is objectively invisible? The answer is that such observation is sufficient only when the ends of an action are so much like our own that we can understand its motive without any imaginative effort. The observational understanding of motive, then, provides rational evidence of motive on the basis of external behavior alone.
