  • Comments : p. 2-3 ...the Ionian Enchantment... means a belief in the unity of the sciences... ...that the world is orderly and can be explained by a small number of natural laws. ... But the spell of the Enchantment extends to other fields as well, and in a few minds it reaches beyond into the social sciences, and still further... touch the humanities. Chapter 2 "The greatest enterprise of the mind has always been and always will be the attempted linkage of the sciences and the humanities."
