Symbols and vocabulary are keys to forms of communication that can only be meaningful within particular situations. The simplistic formulas that show up in political science now seem trite to me compared to the kind of observations which Isaiah Berlin would like to see regarding how societies function. 2008 might be a poor perspective for correlating ideas with current movements in power and stupidity, but attempting to understand how thinkers wanted to settle upon a future when thinkers seemed to matter, at least to people like Isaiah Berlin, is a great intellectual exercise.
