A brief response by our author to this NY Times Op-Ed piece:
“Graduate education in the humanities may have its problems, but don’t try to tar science with the same brush.”
“The humanities aren’t sciences, they don’t solve problems like sciences, and they shouldn’t try to be sciences.”
Is the public lens currently being focused on the problem in a way that does justice to neither the humanities nor the sciences? There has been some successful modeling of some scientific rigor in the past.
