Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I've read this and a few of the recent dust-ups I alas missed over the holidays, and was surprised to have not seen references to a few things which I would have expected, especially to Kuhn and in particular his work The Structure of Scientific Revolutions,  as well as CP Snow who wrote of and lectured on the gulf between the scientific and literary communities that I believe is exactly the cause of quite a lot of friction in these thread I've observed.

And he is absolutely correct. We get nowhere fast when the humanities talk past the sciences and vice versa.
