Quote of the Day

The essence of what Jerry Pournelle calls 'the voodoo sciences' is pithily encapsulated in this bon mot:
The word 'science' is used equivocally in the academy to describe both what a chemist does and what a psychiatrist does, even though the chemist would be laughed out of his profession were he to base his claims on 'insights' like those of the psychiatrist.
-- Joseph Moore, Yard Sale of the Mind
