Gay, Volney:
Progress and Values in the Humanities: Comparing Culture and Science - libri usati

ISBN: 9780231147903

ID: 771645

At many universities, money and support tend to flow in the direction of economics, science, and other departments that demonstrate measurable "progress." The humanities, however, present more abstract and uncertain outcomes. Medical research can cure disease, whereas the benefits of studying Hebrew scripture are hard to quantify, especially when so many scholars have already studied the texts. Because a humanist's objects of study are obscure in ways that pathogens and cell manufacture are not, the humanities will never progress according to scientific criteria. By comparing the objects of science, such as the brain, the galaxy, the amoeba, and the quark, to the objects of humanistic inquiry, such as the poem, the photograph, the belief, and the philosophical concept, Volney Gay reestablishes a fundamental distinction between science and the humanities, freeing the latter from its pursuit of material-based progress and restoring its disciplines to a place of privilege and respect. Through the metaphor of magnification, Gay shows that, whereas natural objects can be investigated to the limits of imaging capacity, cultural objects cannot be magnified without dissolving into noise& mdash;they can only be studied in context and through metaphor and narrative. Gathering examples from literature, art, film, philosophy, religion, science, and psychoanalysis, Gay finds a new justification for the humanities: In revealing the unseen and making abstract ideas tangible, the arts create meaningful wholes, which itself is a form of progress.

Money and support tend to flow in the direction of economics, science, and other academic departments that demonstrate measurable "progress." The humanities, on the other hand, offer more abstract and uncertain outcomes. A humanist's objects of study are more obscure in certain ways than pathogens and cells. Consequently, it seems as if the humanities never truly progress. Is this a fair assessment? By comparing objects of science, such as the brain, the galaxy, the amoeba, and the quark, with objects of humanistic inquiry, such as the poem, the photograph, the belief, and the philosophical concept, Volney Gay reestablishes a fundamental distinction between science and the humanities. He frees the latter from its pursuit of material-based progress and restores its disciplines to a place of privilege and respect. Using the metaphor of magnification, Gay shows that, while we can investigate natural objects to the limits of imaging capacity, magnifying cultural objects dissolves them into noise. In other words, cultural objects can be studied only within their contexts and through the prism of metaphor and narrative. Gathering examples from literature, art, film, philosophy, religion, science, and psychoanalysis, Gay builds a new justification for the humanities. By revealing the unseen and making abstract ideas tangible, the arts create meaningful wholes, which itself is a form of progress. Social Science Social Science eBook, Columbia University Press
