Philosophy of the Political Science Major | UC Berkeley Political Science
Contrary to Mehler's attempts to invoke wrath at the alleged anti-Semitism inherent in research into heredity, he should recognise, as so many Jewish scientists do, that the Jewish community has benefited from hereditarian research and eugenical practices at least as much as any other population. Written by the scribe Chapala. Even the forest people, who live in Beloved-of-the-Gods' domain, are entreated and reasoned with to act properly. Against much advice, and with at least one eminent psychologist threatening to resign if he did so, Matarazzo decided to cancel the ceremony and further investigate the award. However, in our fallibility there will on occasion appear to be a conflict between rational observation science and the revealed word religion.
To commemorate their accomplishments, the department has put together a virtual commencement program. As a political science major at UC Berkeley, Ben Harper has dedicated himself to merging theory and practice, developing a deeper understanding of the ideas behind our politics while working to use those ideas to implement equitable public policy. Raised in Weaverville, a town of 3, people, he saw firsthand the impacts of environmental degradation in the local mountain environment and the devastating effects of forest fires that burned nearby communities. Ben worked with the 5 Counties Salmonid Conservation Program, a local environmental nonprofit dedicated to protecting local watersheds. Learning how local government and planning officials created sustainable policies inspired Ben to study political science at Berkeley and further explore the theoretical, historical, and institutional explanations for our political intuitions and their potential to bring about positive change.
Pi Sigma Alpha is a national political science honor society. Berkeley's chapter was started several years ago to provide dedicated Cal Political Science majors with a forum to have their voices heard within the department and nationally. Pi Sigma Alpha gives members a chance to participate in and plan lectures, debates, and national essay contests. In addition, Pi Sigma Alpha is an excellent way for students who excel academically to meet with peers, professors, and staff of the Political Science department. We give Political Science honor students a voice at Cal Berkeley.
