The overall reception of Max Weber on the part of the Symbolic Interactionism is marked by a lack of consideration, or by perfunctory mention, or by critical rejection. To the extent that Weber's work has been considered at all, attention has been devoted to his notion of Verstehen, variously appraised, rather than to other Weberian categories. This papaer is an attempt to reconsider Weber's potential contribution to Symbolic Interactionism in a more positive light. To this end, the Weberian categories of Verstehen and consensual action have been related, with particular reference to Blumer (1969), to those of meaningful interaction and definition of the situation. A discussion of status groups, as Weber representatives of Symbolic Interactionism have defined and discussed them, should bring into light the potential relevance of Weber for this theoretical perspective.
