The Impotence of Science

Cynthia Nielsen has a very interesting post regarding Nietzsche and Dostoyevski on the Effects of a "Purely" Scientific Metanarrative. This is a snip out of the Nietzshe quote:

Therefore a higher culture must give man a double brain, two brain chambers, as it were, one to experience science, and one to experience nonscience. Lying next to one another, without confusion, separable, self-contained: our health demands this.
Read it all at per caritatem.

Hi Patrick,

Thanks for highlighting this post. Reading through some of Dostoyevski's writings lately, I have been struck with the similaries between aspects of his thought and Nietzsche's.

Warm regards,
