  •  Holy Cow (none)
    Weber on dKos.  Never thought I'd see that.

    His work on politics as a vocation (as well as science as a vocation) are underread--he tends to get more play for his analyses of legitimacy and bureaucracy.  Nice to see his work put to use in these conversations.  Then again, as an academic sociologist, I may be a bit biased.

    There is nothing more frightful than ignorance in action. *J.W. von Goethe

      Goethe--and reference to the White Rose.

    •  I agree (none)
      As the recipient of a lowly BA in sociology, I must admit that to see Weber discussed (and well!) on this site was wonderful.

      A very good "real-world" explanation---Nader explains what Weber was warning against quite well, it seems.
