No, its response to a silly-assed post.


Actually, several people responded.... perhaps you're being a little thin skinned? She said some stupid stuff.... She made some comments that were out of line and obviously got called down on it..... I mean she hasn't been back since making the post and it was removed along with a comment I made about it..... We didn't run her off, she did it to herself.

Just like I said.... she made some remarks and they were removed by the mods..... I don't remember them.... do you recall every post that was ever removed?

I think Mario is aware of this; I know I am. I don't believe that was the point, however. I made a joke concerning Derowrs' absence, and a few others joined in. Mario took exception to it, and in his own childish way is trying to create guilty consciences where none exist.

This is what a German philosopher would refer to as idealtypische ...

Max Weber was a sociologist, not a philosopher.  But as I (and others) enforce the "typical ideal" I will decide upon the practical versus the ideal.  And those who are dissatisfied may apply as moderator volunteers themselves with my blessings.

I have been down the road of mod in the past, so I do my best not to criticize. In the event I ever do, feel free to recall this post and remind me. 'Nuff said...


Now Mario, just exactly is the definition of this term "idealtypische" I've gone through dictionary, as well as the thesaurus, and had no hits. Run your working definition past me, and let's see how it fits. Or more accurately, if it actually applies in this or any other case.

First, while Max Weber used extensively the word idealtypische and the relative conceptual category, he certainly did NOT invent it, but derived it from German Idealism.


Second, thanks for the advice ...

I thought as much. The closest I could come to was idealized. Now if you would be so kind, apply that loose translation to this particular concern you have. I'd be quite interested to see why you chose that term for this situation.

While I have no clue as to what you mean by "relative conceptual category," Max Weber did indeed "invent" the word.  The two separate words were obviously already extant in the vocabulary but he penned this technical term in his "Economy and Society."  I'll grant you the individual terms used together in a general sentence are indeed derived from "German idealism."  Not so with the term you used.  And I, too, would like to know what you meant by using this term as it seems to have absolutely no application here in its compound form. If you had, rather, posted "typische ideal," (English translation: "ideal type")  it would have made sense.  Is that what you meant?  If so what is so hard about posting something clearer in English like, "More honour'd in the breach than the observance?"  - Shakespeare's HAMLET.

So, making an offhand comment makes me the "arbiter"? Dear fellow, a smart-assed comment is nothing more than that.

Post #84, and I guess you could throw post #86 in there too.


Interesting that you chose to jump in when you don't know what is being said.............
