THE DEATH OF MAX WEBER During the last night he mentioned the name Cato and said, with an unfathomable mystery in his voice: ‘ Das Wahre ist die Wahrheit ’ [‘The true is the truth’]. All that human strength could do to wrest him from death was done. He patiently put up with everything – but then he said, Ach, Kinder, nun lasst es nur, es hilft ja doch nichts’ [‘Oh, children, don’t bother any more; it won’t do any good anyway’]. His heart could no longer withstand his high fever. On Monday, June 14, [1920] the world outside became quite still; only a thrush sang incessantly its song of yearning. Time stopped. Toward evening Weber breathed his last. As he lay dying, there was a thunderstorm and lightning flashed over his paling head. He became the picture of the departed knight. His face bespoke gentleness and exalted renunciation. He had moved to some distant, inaccessible place. The earth had stopped. - Marianne Weber, Max Weber (1926), p. 698.
