The manner in which Werner Sombart 2 connects luxury and capitalism draws attention to late-medieval and early Renaissance royal and papal courts as the locations where future developments that would shape governmental structures in the future took root. These precursors of modern courts have first created social groups that exclusively served the self-referential interests of these crucibles of economic, social and cultural life whether as courtiers or as ladies lending with their manners a defining spirit to these places. In this focus on courtly life, Sombart connects the spirit of capitalism to the luxury with which courtly society was associated. Moreover, these royal residences and metropolises also drew the intellectual luminaries of their epochs to where the fine society has literally held court. The luxury and refinement with which the courtly life has become stably associated ever since Sombart 3 have been the prototypes of the worldly glamor that contemporary fashion, film and entertainment industries continue to embody. In other words, it is particular places where long-standing types of sociality, casts of thought and cultural traditions were initially forged in order to continue to have their effects on social, intellectual and cultural life whenever and wherever suitable conditions arise.

Cultural Politics 1 March ; 12 1 : 1— It is in this de-moralization process that we locate the emergence of modern understandings of luxury and their connection to the rise of capitalism. Nevertheless, for Werner Sombart, luxury is intimately connected to the early development of capitalism.
Werner Sombart January 19, — May 18, was a German economist and sociologist , the head of the "Youngest Historical school of economics " and one of the leading continental European social scientists during the first quarter of the twentieth century. Initially influenced by Marxism , Sombart's early writings on capitalism reflect his understanding and acceptance of many of Marx 's ideas. His sociological work countered Max Weber 's thesis that the "spirit of capitalism" was linked to Protestantism , as Sombart claimed that Jews embodied such a spirit and were the driving economic force in the growth of capitalism. Sombart was accused of anti-Semitism , although his initial thesis was positive towards Jews. His later writings showed the influence of Nazism, although again his position in relation to that ideology was ambiguous.
