Abstract
In the 20th century, Max Weber’s theory of modern bureaucracy had an important influence on the research of administration. As a rational and efficient form of organization and management system, modern bureaucracy embodies the characteristics of impersonalization and institutionalization that meets the needs of industrial production and organization management. However, in the post-industrial society, the disadvantages of modern bureaucracy are becoming increasingly prominent. There is a fierce conflict between value rationality and instrumental rationality, which caused ethical dilemmas. The key to solve the ethical dilemmas of modern bureaucracy lies in dealing with the relationship between value rationality and instrumental rationality. It’s important to promote the institutionalization of public administration ethics, strengthen the sense of moral responsibility and administrative personality of public administrators.
