The authors outline the evolution of leadership models within the different forms of capitalism around three temporal passages: the beginnings of modern Western capitalism, the transformations that took place in the 1900s and especially at the beginning of the 21st century, the possible alternative towards a new spirit of capi-talism. This reconstruction keeps the categories of "authority", "power" and "spir-it" in the background. The analysis assumes that the identification between au-thority and power draws out unresolved issues, especially for organizations and socio-economic development models in their essential link with anthropological dimensions that the term ‘spirit’, in the Weberian sense, reveals.
