Application Paper,Distribution of Power within the Political Community

In this chapter, Max Weber zeros in on the different perspectives of power in the society especially in political circles. While some people pursue power because of the sheer value it has, others perceive power as a platform for attaining honor in the society. According to Max Weber, “some people in the society connect power to honor”. (Appelrouth & Edles, 2010) In essence, this means that powerful people are considered in a unique way compared to other individuals. This is why some people crave immensely for power especially in the political community. Apart from social honor, Max Weber evaluates power from the perceptive of personal interest.
