Sample text

Certainly no ‘theory’ is involved, except in the minds of the pre-selectors. A computer can, however, reveal persuasive probabilities: it can show us which of several alternatives is most likely to produce certain mechanical results; it can show us how to do most expeditiously certain things we have already decided to do, or how to make the best use of the materials available. But apart from providing this influential array of information, it can never directly determine any decision. It is even further from demonstrating any ‘law’ in the social sciences.

Because we cannot yet devise positive scientific techniques which will enable us to measure and to analyse the whole, we concentrate too much on those elements which are amenable to the techniques which we have developed. There is value in the attempt to refine techniques, but it is a mistake to suppose that we are seriously nearer to understanding the purpose of human life when we have devised a calculus for measuring human happiness in ‘Euphor Units’. This is surely the fallacy which Max Hammerton has described as ‘Physicalism’.
