So, college has started up for me, that means soon I will be full of sociological quandaries and questions to pose. In fact, I already have one that I received. According to Max Weber, we have life chances that can be broken down into a simple equation. C+C+C+C= Life Chances When broken down further, this equation is this: Chromosomes (genes) + Culture (circumstances) + Choices (individual actions) + Chance (sheer luck) = Life Chances This means that according to Weber, this formula indicates that our life chances (whether or not we find a significant other, have children, get an awful disease, etc) hinge on all four of these. So my questions are simply, Do you agree with Weber's equation? Why or why not? What would you change, and what would you keep? Do any parts of the equation hold more weight than other parts, or do they all have the same weight in determining life chances?
