The End of Theory: The Data Deluge Makes the Scientific Method Obsolete - 0 views

  • This is a world where massive amounts of data and applied mathematics replace every other tool that might be brought to bear. Out with every theory of human behavior, from linguistics to sociology. Forget taxonomy, ontology, and psychology. Who knows why people do what they do?

The age of educational romanticism by Charles Murray - The New Criterion - 0 views

  •  
    Murray has more than a few problems as a source but many of his criticisms hit home. Is education so pitiful in it's effect on people? Is that really what the research says because I didn't note much that he cited.
