Sunday Papers: Toby Green

"It has become a dogma of recent times that only something that is scientifically proven or verifiable is justifiable as a channel of enquiry.  But this, like most dogmas, is a cultural fact and not an actual fact.  Scientific observation tells us what is happening to the tattered fabric of the world's environment, but not why it is happening.  In order to understand this, we must return to a study of culture, since culture has replaced selection as the defining force of evolution."
