Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think kant solved the problem of metaphysics (my fav author by far).. but not the problem of magic.. anthropology had not started his progress.

Only Hume could comment (just for fun) what some centuries later will become tte great discussion of the century, are magic and scientific narratives fundamentally different? And if not, are there inherent magic foundation to science as Hume sustained?

I think the answer is defintely yes... but as with Quantum mechanics and Migeru explained..we have not  udnerstood what it really means, we do not have schoalrs who could provide more Asimovs and Sagans.. and we ahve a scientific structure outside math physics and cehmistry (mainly biology and medicine) which are facing the XXI century with a mechanistic and naive approach that I find sometimes scary.

And I do not even mention the real possibility that the "why" question might be more important to good social bonding thant he "how" question.

I therefore claim to show, not how men think in myths, but how myths operate in men's minds without their being aware of the fact. Levi-Strauss, Claude
