For me, one of its appeals is its dual nature; it makes use of both sides of the <a href="">brain</a>. In some ways, it has elements of a hard science, mathematical models, empirical data, etc. However, at its core, it is a social science. We can see an example of this in the concept of value. It can be both intangible and tangible. The value of a human life is subjective.</p></div> <ul class="links inline list-inline"><li class="node-readmore"><a href="" rel="tag" title=" Technology and Demography" hreflang="en">Read more<span class="visually-hidden"> about Technology and Demography</span></a></li><li class="comment-comments"><a href="" title="Jump to the first comment." hreflang="en">2 comments</a></li><li class="comment-forbidden"></li></ul></div> </article> Thu, 07 Oct 2010 20:29:50 +0000 Shawn Conn 91 at The Human Mind <article role="article" class="quote teaser clearfix"><h2> <a href="" rel="bookmark"><span>The Human Mind</span> </a> </h2> <div class="content"> <ul class="links inline list-inline"><li class="node-readmore"><a href="" rel="tag" title="The Human Mind" hreflang="en">Read more<span class="visually-hidden"> about The Human Mind</span></a></li></ul><div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item">The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.</div> </div> </article> Sun, 09 May 2010 01:42:46 +0000 Shawn Conn 82 at
