    Law and Society: Political Science

    *Should be semi-understandable.. yet not likely interesting.



    What are examples in modern law of formal rationality, substantive rationality, formal irrationality?

    What would be an example of Marxist perspectives on law and social change?

    • Law is used by the people or institutions in power to expand their reaches or grasp and solely defend their beliefs.
    • Law does not always give equal power or protection of rights to some people.


    Pluralist, Weberian and constitutive?

    Does law change over time? If so what would be a valid reason as to why?

    formal rationality As defined by Max Weber in his account of the market and economic action, this refers to the extent of impersonal quantitative calculation (that is, risk assessment) which is possible and applied in provisioning for needs. Money is the best means for ensuring such calculability within a particular institutional order. The concept is best understood in contradistinction to (as well as in the context of) ‘substantive rationality’, which involves provisioning according to some ultimate values, be they status, egalitarian, social justice, or indeed any infinite variety of value-scales by which to judge the outcome of economic action. Given certain substantive conditions–such as legal formalism, bureaucratic administration, free labour, and a system of property rights–formal rationality refers to the calculability of means and procedures, sub-stantive rationality to the value of ends or outcomes. The two are in constant tension, in so far as social action is oriented to ends, beliefs, and value commitment.

    I got the bulk of this information from online college curriculum's from institutions like MIT. Most colleges offer a good deal of assignments, lectures, videos and even projects in video audio and text. Its good if you want to know if you're suited to a certain course.

    +Lol @ Texas.

    I don't shout at this guy for advertising because he posted something intelligent, and in general, that is rare.

    I believe the no-advertising rule only applies to other hacking sites with some exceptions like those "money-maker" sites.

    Anybody care to enlighten us with some answers?

    Advertising is any promotion of an outside source/company. That is my my knowledge of the rule. I would consider this advertising, but because it is an intellectual conversation, I would let it slide.

    I wasn't aware of that back in the day.. perhaps it changed.
    I haven't been very current with MPGH rules.
