Much more could be said about the later elaboration of this form of explanation, about the emergence from it of the concept of a field, about Einstein's postulation of space-time structure that would end the search for the "cause of gravity", about force as "explained" by elementary particle exchange in quantum field theory.. .. The warfare myth is clearly supported by these dynamics, as it is if there are two opposing camps firing back at each other.

Philosophy-majors are probably more reading intensive than even English majors; I remember some quarters having thousands of pages of reading a week, which wasn’t true for comparable humanities degrees. (Obviously, this has ramifications for things like vocabulary size, reading comprehension, etc) In terms of the verbal section, it’s hard to see either a) how you could complete a philosophy degree if you weren’t good at that sort of thing already, or b) how you could manage to come out of such a degree program and still not be.

In his eyes, Newton had shown, in effect, that this was the best that could be done in the domain of body and that it warranted weaker notions of cause and of explanation in that domain than the traditional ones. The professors of English include scholars, theorists, poets, and novelists. But five years and $5 million dollars later, what the scientists got was an exhibition that presented American science as a series of moral debacles and environmental catastrophes: Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Silent Spring, Love Canal, Three Mile Island, and the explosion of the space shuttle."
