    Actually, I think you'll find that scholasticism and humanism have been more prevalent throughout world history
    That doesn't dismiss the Newtonian mechanistic world view. And even Freud, considered a humanist to most people, based his theories on mechanics. When someone like Freud tries to disguise psychology as a natural science it says quite a lot about how social sciences are looked upon as inferior to natural sciences.

    That doesn't warrant stating that 'science rules the knowledge hierarchy' though, because it dismisses other opinions. Anyway, it's impossible to contest that Scholasticism was the prevalent view until the 16th Century, when Humanism took over. Or the view that all progress in mankind is a result of progress through historical appreciation.

    Personally, I think that man uses the idea of progress to understand more about the social and natural aspects of the world in which he lives, and thus progress himself.

    I don't like Clement's attitude on 'Just A Minute' - he's too competitive. He should take a chill pill :cool:

    I think the only mistake that Carr makes (in the view of the contemptuous little insect that is Mark) is that he looks on history as "progress".

    In my opinion, history is the study of "historical process", a change which is neither intrinsically good (as the positive word progress suggest it is) or intrinsically bad (the view favoured by those nostalgic types who look on history with rose tinted glasses, and feel that we are constantly “regressing” as a people).

    Who on says that science rules the knowledge hierarchy?
    Due to its dominance in Science it has more Nobel Prizes (far higher than Oxford). However, did not produce a UK Prime Minister during the 20th Century. Overall, think it's likely that even LSE has had far more influence in Politics than Cambridge.

    Just a minute isn't political but it is a similar type of humour - Paul Merton is on it a lot.
