The reading for this week is Weber, where we discuss the emergence of modern social science with its fact-value distinction. The students were able to grasp the main ideas, but they are ready to conclude the semester, as this is the last week of lecture. Overall, I am pleased with the progress of most of the students. Hopefully they will be able to retain some of the main political concepts and thinkers we discussed this past semester and use them to navigate the upcoming elections (if they pay attention to it at all).
