Max Weber's View of Objectivity in Social Science

Note that if our company experienced financial difficulty, we wouldn’t ask our employees to accept less pay. A sports team with a losing record still pays top of personal market for the players they hope will get them back into a winning position. On the other hand, if the company does well, our broadly distributed stock options become quite valuable.

In reaching this conclusion I have made the usual assumptionthat it is the acquisition of energy that is the problem. Theappearance of atomic energy has led some to question thisassumption. However, given an infinite source of energy,population growth still produces an inescapable problem. Theproblem of the acquisition of energy is replaced by the problemof its dissipation, as J. H.

Such was the fate of author Ding Ling, the most prominent female writer of her generation, whose attack on the sexist attitudes of her comrades resulted in suppression.
