The Ambassadors Reception wrote:*Sends you a diplomatic cable*

The polls seem somehow....biased.

Cerveskia wrote:The polls seem somehow....biased.

? I'm curious as to what way. There's definite personal bias in the way I wrote about them, but I don't think the polls themselves are.

The first one is designed to be difficult to answer. I'd expect the majority of people to agree that "Black Lives Matter". I'd also expect the majority of people to agree that having a police force is better than not having a police force. How do you weigh up which is more important?

The second asked who you thought would win, not who you want to win. And the third was just silly.

The Ambassadors Reception
Do the polls really reflect the general values of NS, or just a vocal minority who actually reads and participates in them? I've seen more than a few of those nations which seem to always vote in any major poll that exists.

It's a few polls set up for fun in a browser game. I don't feel the need to go that deep.

Free Transhumanists wrote:Political sciences. Primary specialization - political economy and theory, secondary - policy analysis. :-)

Free Transhumanists wrote:Well in political science I'm focusing primarily on Austrian school - currently Ludwig Lachmann's theory of divergent expectations (I belong to irrationalist wing of the school). And Rothbard + Mises combo of course :-D. But I also deal with Public Choice theory, Arrow's theorem and it's usage in political systems.

In political theory I'm focusing on critical theory - mostly "classical" neo-marxists like Adorno, Horkheimer and Marcuse (my favorite). But I'm also studying post-marxist critique of post-industrial capitalist legitimacy, where are interesting concepts of "compensation" of this lost legitimacy like deliberative model of Jurgen Habermas, or Agoristic democracy of Chantal Mouffe. I would like to know more about postmodern structuralism and post-structuralism (Focault etc.). Oh and neoinstitutionalism... yes, neoinstitutionalism... expecially rationalist institutionalism :-D.

Things that I'm not focusing on (but in future I could I guess :-D), but know something about it as well is - Hegel and dialectic, Multiculturalism of Will Kymlicka and Yuli Tamir, feminism and it's development, classical Marxism, Classical political economy, Cameralist economics, Keynesianism, Lausanne school of economy.

...I really HATE political marketing (marketing overall), medial studies, theories of political systems, theories of parties and party system, international relations theories (except world-system by Wallerstein) etc etc... there is a ton of stuff that I really don't care about but still need to study it :-D.

Well hot dang. That's actually really cool. So, you gonna let your good friends at the FMF read your papers without the academic publishing paywall? I am still a humble undergrad, but this all sounds genuinely interesting.

Being stuck in doors all the time is really doing a number on me

Cerveskia wrote:Is everyone just burned out, or just me?

I have other things that require my attention more than nationstates.

Cerveskia wrote:Is everyone just burned out, or just me?

Combination of being burnt out and having this pesky thing called "the real world" to attend to.

Environmental Support wrote:Isn't neoinstituionalism somewhat like normative theory applied to politics? I've only really studied institutionalism in reference to international cooperation or domestic social and economic development. Less theory and more hard application.

In my opinion it's more of an approach towards research and perception of social reality. Theory should be more narrow and focus on more specific phenomenon. In practice of political economy the theories of institutionalism and neonistitutionalism could be theory of psychological costs, or institutional theory of corporations, in pure political science there can be found for example theory of institutionalization of political parties, various theories of mediation of interest that are using neoinstitutionalist approach, etc.

Of course :-D when I'm going to publish something, official or not, I want it to be available for free. At our university's department it is a tradition to make all outputs as transparent as possible and I'm going to follow that tradition no matter if I'm going to be the continuous part of our department of political science or not. Research and philosophy is for society, for public development and therefore it should be transparent and available at least in electronic form, yes I know I'm basically preaching academic communism :-D but there is a reason for that. Here in Czech republic if there is a private social research organization, they almost always do research which main goal is not knowledge or looking into phenomena, but to advocate some ideologies - sure, normative theories are not bad and are valuable, but this is barely a normative theory, they mostly do quantitative research where they misinterpret the numbers, or set the framework and datasets so purposefully that their hypothesis would be confirmed for sure. So if we are going to speak about serious research in CZ then we need to speak about public institutions that are financed by the state and the EU, here the research is both, qualitative and quantitative and because it's "not our money" we can't just publish anything, because it could endanger the financing from certain public funds, so making efforts to make unbiased answering to the research questions are not just of a moral, but also of existential importance :-D.

I'm sharing this experience with you as well! :-D

P.S.: Guys I'm really really sorry for my inactivity, I know I said I would be more active, but after graduation there is still so much that needs to be done :-/. Currently I'm looking for research job for working practice (being theoretician is not that much of a 'thing' right now :-D), then I started to making preparations to the postgrad study, and of course there are some personal matters that needs to be taken care of as well. :-/
