    Phyllis - to a large extent I agree that this mythology is in the process of being rejected; that's
    what I understand 'post-modernism' to be. What I am interested in is not getting rid of the baby
    with the bathwater (which is what I think that mythology did to religion). There are some profoundly
    important things about science that we need to hang on to - within a larger context.

    I accept your point about citations, by the way, but I treat the MD forum as akin to conversation
    (the essays are a little different) and I'd rather know what somebody believes for themselves (and
    why) that wade through lots of extracts (like the ones I provided from Grace Jantzen... yikes -
    hoist by my own petard?)

    Where did (do) you do your philosophy in the real world?

    : Hi Sam,
    : If this were 1959, I would agree with you.
