Weber's Ideal Types

***** Weber's concept of the ideal types is a 'measure' that he developed in order to aid sociologists like him study sociological phenomenon based on empirical data and evidence. The concept of the ideal type, *****n, is to demonstrate in general and abstract terms experiences and phenomena ***** are specifically and concretely identified in the social environment of ***** individual. In effect, the ideal ***** ***** by Weber are his attempt to create a general and ***** concept from specific and concrete examples in real life. The ideal ***** acts as a "representative" ***** which a ***** or social scenario will be comp*****d ***** contr*****ted against. Four ideal types were generated from Weber's studies: (1) ***** zweckrational, which employs rational means to achieve rational results; (2) wertrational, employing rational means to arrive at ir***** ***** (3) affektual or the employment of emotion; and (4) traditional or subsistence to custom ***** habit. ***** Gratz et. Al. vs. Bollinger et. al. case brings into fore a critical issue that can be applied to ***** ideal types. The University of Michigan's use of race as a "plus" indic**********r for applicants, and its employment of said rule on both ***** Gratz and Hamacher, is an example ***** a ***** ***** type. The consideration of ***** as a qualifier or ***** ideal ***** *****elf in the University's admission *****s is a rational step in *****der to sat*****fy or ***** an ir***** goal. The rule does not, as ***** Supreme Court decision elab*****ated, in any way demonstrate consideration of racial diversity except for the fact that the University admits individuals who belong to underrepresented minorities. This being ***** case, it is irrational that such rule should be employed, and included still after annual rev*****ions ***** the University's ***** policies. This case serves as an example of how the wertrational ideal type is present in ***** phenomenon, and can provide reflections on how ***** and *****s are crafted, applied, and critically analyzed in real life
