Weber's Ideal Types

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