The Scientific Soul

“The great shift … is the movement away from the value-laden languages of … the ‘humanities,’ and toward the ostensibly value-neutral languages of the ‘sciences.’ This attempt to escape from, or to deny, valuation is … especially important in psychology … and the so-called social sciences. Indeed, one could go so far as to say that the specialized languages of these disciplines serve virtually no other purpose than to conceal valuation behind an ostensibly scientific and therefore nonvaluational semantic screen.. . . The language of science — and especially of a science of man — is, necessarily, anti-individualistic, and hence a threat to human freedom and dignity.” — Thomas Szasz
