More than a hundred years ago, the brilliant philosopher and father of modern psychology William James warned his American compatriots against "scientism."
The Oscar-winning director and screenwriter of "The Hurt Locker" have asked a federal judge to dismiss an Iraq war veteran's lawsuit alleging the film is based on him.
Imagine two lines on a graph — one zigs and zags, the other rises rapidly. They could represent two current unsettling world currents.
"As a society, we have a history of dismissing popular culture, especially that consumed by young women, as silly and therefore irrelevant," writes Jennifer Hahn at Trans/Missions.
In 'The Will to Believe,' William James quotes a schoolboy remark: 'Faith is when you believe in something you know ain't true.'
He warned it would not work, a conviction based perhaps as much on psychological understanding as philosophical logic; as the old saying goes, people will be people.
