May 31, Leah rated trasofndo it was amazing. The rest comes from the friendships and relationships they form. They also seem to contradict the model of science laid out by Francis Bacon.

Trouble is, he forgets his own lesson, and treats “the modern world view” as if it were precisely such a bundle of axioms, rather than anything to live by. In this view, phase two Modernity effects something of an anit-Renaissance.

Science emerged during a period obsessed with its own objectivity, the independence of its thought from the realities of its thinkers. Instead, the call is to a humanizing embrace of contextuality.

Stephen Toulmin

First principles, as laid out first by Descartes and elaborated by many philosophers who found his premises enticing, involved a series of faith-based premises that far overreached the scientific knowledge available at the time. At the same time, he insists that we cannot reject the legacy of the 17th century; rather we must humanize it, in the realms of natural science, philosophy, and politics—a change that seems already underway.

The Abuses of Argument: Descartes, and subsequetly natural science and philosophy, sought universal, stable theories that would rise above the conflicts of the day.

Rather than acknowledging that both sides are expressions of the same faith in slightly different contexts they for some reason this was left essentially unexamined in the book, one of the weakest links in its argument to me looked to first principles, a clean slate of thought that could resolve this intractable dispute. Toulmin traces the ideas of modernism into the 20th century, when they were threatened by relativity, psychology, anthropology, and early ecology, but delayed by a last-ditch surge in hyper-rationalism sparked by the first World War a parallel for the Thirty Years War in many ways.

Below find my “working outline” of Toulmin’s text. Far from breaking away from religious censure, theologian and philosopher both became more doctrinaire and dogmatic as ideological battlelines hardened between Protestant and Catholic. If they live in a community where they’re in touch with faculty, then their college experience is going to be that much richer. In this regard, I find the call to ‘return to de Montaigne’ all the more pertinent, because as a Catholic humanist he was the most respected moderating figure in the midst the Thirty Years War’s warring factions.

Specifically, Toulmin maps a shift from pre fascination with rhetoric to a post obsession with logic, from case law and case ethics to universal moral theology, from ethnographic accounts of the local to abstract model modernidxd how societies ought to run, from omdernidad application to csompolis.el matter at hand to a timeless truths. That, to me, is an interesting point about the philosophy of science and I think it complicates cosmpklis.el understanding of what science is.

Cosmopolis: The Hidden Agenda of Modernity by Stephen Toulmin

Toulmin again concludes with historiographic reflections, here worth noting. Seventeenth-century thinkers had a high level of motivation to create something new.

On the coloniality of being: Toulmin rightly wonders which parts we should erase from the whiteboard as even the French Revolution left some institutions and traditions in place.

They are books that can only be attempted by writers and thinkers with encyclopedic knowledge and a brilliant capacity to analyze and synthesize. This is an age of humble systems, the age of Lilliput, not Leviathan, an age of ecology, not astrophysics noting that ecology, while ruling meta-metaphor, is essentially open to context in a way that Newton-esque models were not.
