Science is Not Your Enemy by Steven Pinker
« on: August 30, 2013, 01:48:13 PM »
An Article in New Republic by Steven Pinker:

Science Is Not Your Enemy: An impassioned plea to neglected novelists, embattled professors, and tenure-less historians

Pinker attempts to make a plea for not-demonizing or rejecting science in the humanities.  Coherent and interesting.  I wish Jungians could be moved by such pleas, but I doubt they would identify.

Also interesting as a follow up to this article is part of a conversation from 1999 on Edge.org between Steven Pinker and Richard Dawkins:

IS SCIENCE KILLING THE SOUL?
You can always come back, but you can’t come back all the way.
