Mead: Science + Morality
- Life innovation/creativity is always occurring
o As opposed to just occurring once a lifetime
- Weber:
o Science nihilism
Sciences tells us how to pursue
But not what to do
- Mead:
o Teleology vs. Mechanism
Teleology
Telos = purpose/goal
Teoleological view = traditional moral view on life
o There’s a goal/purpose behind every event
E.g., if someone dies, God is punishing him
Mechanism
Scientific attitude
o Kind of Weber-esque
There is no goal in life; stuff just happens
All we can do is adapt to the situation
Religious person sees scientific person as living aimlessly

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
