1. Well, see, it's like this...
There are many natural scientists, and especially physicists, who continue to reject the notion that the
disciplines concerned with social and cultural criticism can have anything to contribute, except
perhaps peripherally, to their research. Still less are they receptive to the idea that the very
foundations of their worldview must be revised or rebuilt in the light of such criticism. Rather, they
cling to the dogma imposed by the long post-Enlightenment hegemony over the Western intellectual
outlook, which can be summarized briefly as follows: that there exists an external world, whose
properties are independent of any individual human being and indeed of humanity as a whole; that
these properties are encoded in "eternal" physical laws; and that human beings can obtain reliable,
albeit imperfect and tentative, knowledge of these laws by hewing to the "objective" procedures and
epistemological strictures prescribed by the (so-called) scientific method.

4. I'm working on it.
I need a Valium but I don't have any (never did); so I'm using Bacardi instead. ;)
