As I mentioned earlier, this list seems to value what might be termed the
pragmatic over the more subjective or spirtual side of agriculture. We must,
though, give pause and ask why when many of the practices in the organic and
sustainable arena up to a few years ago were considered to be in this latter
camp with no rationale or "scientific" basis. The movement has fought long and
hard to be able to sit pare passu with the "scientists" and have their ideas
considered equally with conventional wisdom that they are reluctant to admit
those further out of fears not fully articulated.
Yet we know that science does not discover via a logically/rational path; but
uses that "argument" to validate what started out as a fringe speculation, yet
to be admitted to the world of the Academy. We have seen this with the
organic/sustainable movement in agriculture.
Can this list afford to ignore the heritage and sell this soul for the king's
shilling of conventional acceptance? Can metaphysics be stripped out and
agriculture reduced to a "science"
