“A scientific observer or reasoner, merely as such,
is not an adviser for practice."
" His part is only to show that certain consequences follow from certain causes,
and that to obtain certain ends,
certain means are the most effectual. "
" Whether the ends themselves are such as ought to be pursued,
and if so, in what cases and to how great a length,
it is no part of his business as a cultivator of science to decide"
"science alone will never qualify him for the decision.”
Science and it's is still needs morality and it's Humean oughts
before any decent policy can be fully formed and effectuated
The blind navigator is no navigator merely an actor
But the "ought less navigator "
is without sufficient motive to consistently act at all
Okay first hack
What is the organized body of thought under
Civil engineering or firm management for that matter
A practical science of state craft
Surely that was the incepting motive in the 17 th century behind bourgeois political economy ..eh ?
A pure science of exchange ?
Market mediated ( commodity ) production ?
That the progression over time was toward general foundations hardly leads of itself
To a severing of the knot by knot interlacing of the multiple threads shooting
back Stage from daily practice
