Maxims

According to Weber the content of the regularized social relationships can become maxims forms of action that are adhered to and expected to be adhered to at least on average. Weber notes that these can become even more regularized and uniform as they develop into usage, custom, convention and even laws. Weber also said that the regularization is more likely to occur when there is rational action. If the action is effectual or associated with personal connections then there is less likelihood of it becoming uniform.
