BfB: Maybe my syntax anthropomorphizes 'paradigm'; the
paradigm of refusing 'objectivity' as a refuge for claims to fact, truth or
knowledge properly identifies (i.e. I'm in agreement) that we each have a
point-of-view that frames our understanding, our life, work etc.
Objectivity and science are also outcomes of social processes. Objectivity,
like Reality. is inexpressible and inconceivable except through religious
faith or authoritarian dictat.
I don't want to go on and on here. I thought your comment a quite
cogent summary of post-modern view of limits of science to decide value
questions; that it well emphasized necessity for responsibility for one's
Your comment is an example of a paradigm critical of a competing
view of science and it's uses. Well spoken,too.
Also, thanks for taking time to post the article summary. Clever
methodology I thought. But I'm just a gardener; (My point-of-view is
informed by my experience gardening.) which is why I find this 'list'
interesting; I bet most of 'list' gardens. How do we garden with this
'list'? fascinating articulate wide ranging interests moderated only by
paradigm and point-of-view.
Is this a great country or what?
Why don't 'we' (the 'list') poll ourselves to constuct a model taxonomy of
garden experience/plant knowledge, and see how our collective experience
informs our interest and allegiance to particular paradigmatic domains?
and we can do an online questionnaire as well.
Good luck to us in this greatest of all uncontrolled experiments,
WHERE THERE IS NO GARDENER, THERE IS NO GARDEN.
