“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Realist Magic Liveblog 10

I'm taking a break from trawling through the book for continuity issues today. Instead I'm reading through the four remaining books on causality I had on my to-do list. The first one is a pretty tough textbook for scientists.

Once I've done some thinking about these books, I'll feel a lot more confident of the project as it stands.
