Science and Humanism

    Article metrics


    IT is sometimes instructive, sometimes amusing, but always interesting “to see ourselves as others see us,” even when we think that their view is distorted. To the January issue of the Nineteenth Century and After, Mr. G. R. Stirling Taylor contributes an article entitled “The Age of Science,” in which he advances criticisms of science and scientific men that are intended to represent the views of the intelligent man in the street. Starting with the assumption that science has dominated the world during the past 100–150 years (he really means the applications of science), he asks whether that domination has been good for man, or whether in harnessing Nature man has not also harnessed himself.
