VIEWPOINT

将科学政治化的危险
安娜·克雷洛夫*
引用这个:J. Phys。 化学。 莱特。 2021, 12, 22, 5371–5376
出版日期:10年2021月XNUMX日

……我是在斯大林后苏联统治相对温和的时期长大的。 尽管如此,意识形态仍渗透到生活的方方面面,生存需要严格遵守党的路线和积极表现出思想上正确的行为。 不加入一个年轻的共产主义组织(共青团)将是职业自杀——非成员被禁止接受高等教育。 公开信奉宗教可能会导致更严重的后果,甚至入狱。 读错书也是如此(奥威尔、索尔仁尼琴等)。 即使是一本不在国家批准名单上的诗集也可能会遇到麻烦。

仅仅服从是不够的——意识形态委员会一直在寻找那些对政权支持不够热情的人。 在强制性政治集会(政治信息或 komsomolskoe sobranie)期间过于安静或因参加强制性群众庆祝活动(如 XNUMX 月或 XNUMX 月的示威活动)迟到而受到纪律处分的情况并不少见。 有一次,我收到一条通知,要求我穿着牛仔裤出席一个非正式的学校活动来宣传帝国主义议程。 一位朋友的档案永久存在瑕疵——使他没有资格获得博士学位。 计划——为了不完全参加大学生要求的旅行:对集体农庄同志的“自愿”帮助。

科学也未能幸免于这种严格的意识形态控制。 西方的影响被认为是危险的。 教科书和科学论文孜孜不倦地强调俄罗斯和苏联科学的优先性和卓越性。

二战后,苏联经历了一个真正的沙文主义时期,历史上的每一项发明——汽车、飞机等等——都归功于伏尔加河地区谷仓里的某个农民。 这有点像今天的时代 乔拜登说,“一个黑人发明了灯泡,而不是一个叫爱迪生的白人。”

整个学科在意识形态上被宣布为不纯洁、反动和敌视工人阶级统治事业和世界革命。 “资产阶级伪科学”的著名例子包括遗传学和控制论。

同样,一群维基百科内部人士宣布,任何关于智力和遗传血统之间联系的实证研究始终是“伪科学”,因此他们有权删除或重写维基百科上涉及该主题的所有内容。

量子力学和广义相对论也因与辩证唯物主义的一致性不足而受到批评。

与 Woke 相比,苏联人对他们的曲棍球运动似乎更加傲慢。 我还没有看到有人争辩说乔治·弗洛伊德的死意味着弦理论一定是对的(或错的)。 但谁知道明天会带来什么。

与化学最相关的是反共振运动(1949-1951)。 这 共振结构理论, 这带来了 莱纳斯鲍林 1954年的诺贝尔奖,被认为是资产阶级伪科学。

马克思主义比 Wokeism 更有智慧,所以让马克思主义者负责意味着你会获得关于共振结构理论的意见(错误的),而让 Wokeists 负责意味着你会获得关于头发抚摸的评论。

试图捍卫该理论的优点及其对理解化学结构的效用的科学家被指责为“世界主义”(西方同情)和对西方资产阶级科学的奴性。 一些失去的工作。 共振理论的两位知名支持者西尔金和迪亚特金娜最终被迫承认他们在意识形态上的罪行并公开谴责共振。 与此同时,社区的其他成员将这次政治清洗作为牺牲他人的机会来推进。 正如包括鲍林本人在内的许多学者所指出的那样,草根反共振运动是由“对他们的科学中的力量对齐感到不满”的人推动的。

对鲍林在化学科学领域的著名进步的支持者在苏联的自动支持特别奇怪,因为在广岛之后,鲍林已成为美国军事力量的主要批评者,后者于 1970 年被授予列宁和平奖。

这是在苏联、纳粹德国和麦卡锡的美国的科学界所有政治运动中反复出现的主题——那些在这个问题上“站在正确一边的人可以跳上几个梯级,取代那些被取消的人。

有朝一日,某个聪明的科学家会想出如何将 Wokeist 理论应用于硬科学中的一些抽象问题,以便取消竞争理论的支持者并占用所有本应给予他们的资助,这似乎很合理,但我可以'在人文科学之外,还没有想到任何这样的例子。

许多优秀的硬科学家都被 Woke 破坏了他们的职业生涯,但这要么是因为白人和/或男性,要么是在政治上不够虔诚。 一般来说,Woke 通常不够聪明,无法关心抽象的科学问题,比如反共振活动家。

当我在莫斯科国立大学学习量子化学时,共振理论已经恢复了。 然而,这场运动的历史和它所带来的不公正并没有被公开讨论——党不欢迎谈论它过去的错误。 我记得听过故事的一部分,在一个派对上,在大量的酒精使舌头松弛后,在某人的呼吸下讲述。

快进到 2021 年——另一个世纪。 冷战是遥远的记忆,我的出生证明和学校和大学文凭上显示的国家苏联已不再出现在地图上。 但我发现自己在向西数千英里处体验它的遗产,就好像我生活在奥威尔式的暮光之城。 我目睹了越来越多的尝试将科学和教育置于意识形态控制和审查之下。 就像在苏联时代一样,审查制度正被更大的利益所证明。 而在 1950 年,更大的好处是推动世界革命(在苏联;在美国,更大的好处意味着与共产主义作斗争),而在 2021 年,更大的好处是“社会正义”(大写很重要:“社会正义”是特定的意识形态,其目标与小写的“社会正义”在简单的英语中的含义几乎没有共同之处)。 就像在苏联一样,审查制度也是由科学界成员从底层积极实施的,他们的动机从幼稚的理想主义到愤世嫉俗的攫取权力不等。

就像在大恐怖时期一样,从儿童书籍的插图到发型和时装,到处都可以看到反对世界革命的危险阴谋和阴谋; 今天,我们被告知,种族主义、父权制、厌女症和其他应受谴责的观念都以科学术语、方程式名称和简单的英语单词编码。 我们被告知,为了建设一个更美好的世界并解决社会不平等问题,我们需要清除我们的文献中的个人记录,这些人的个人记录不符合新真理的高标准,即选。 我们被告知我们需要重写我们的教学大纲并改变我们教学和说话的方式。

作为政治审查和取消文化的一个例子,考虑一个最近的观点,它讨论了几个世纪以来为科学概念和发现命名的传统(阿基米德原理、牛顿运动定律、薛定谔方程、居里定律等)。 作者呼吁在命名发现时保持警惕,并断言“以包容性优先事项命名可能会为对科学及其进步的更丰富、更深入和更强有力的理解提供途径。” 真的吗? 这是基于什么经验依据? 历史告诉我们相反:自由、多元社会的择优科学的成果远远优于苏联和其他极权主义政权意识形态控制的科学成果。 作者呼吁删除“越界”道德或伦理标准的人的名字。 例子包括弗里茨·哈伯、彼得·德拜和威廉·肖克利,但这个名单可以很容易地扩大到包括斯塔克(为将犹太人驱逐出德国机构进行辩护)、海森堡(领导德国的核武器计划)和薛定谔(与下属有过浪漫关系)年龄的女孩)。 事实上,学术团体现在正在为此类更名活动投入大量精力——最近取消的活动之一是进化协会对费舍尔奖的更名,尽管该协会的 10 位前任会长和副会长强烈反对。

20 世纪上半叶的大多数非马克思主义科学家在某种程度上都是“优生学家”,这意味着你可以取消他们。 例如,罗伯特·米利根 (Robert Millikan) 在担任加州理工学院教授期间获得了 1923 年诺贝尔物理学奖,后来或多或少地成为加州理工学院的校长,并将其打造为世纪中叶的霸主地位。 但是加州理工学院的密立根图书馆现在因为密立根与优生学有关而被取消了它的名字。 非白人喜欢它,因为它减少了他们认为压迫的著名白人的数量,而管理员喜欢它,因为现在他们可以将命名权转售给图书馆。

……但是,他们要求重新命名“Shockley-Queisser 限制”。 他们呼吁取消肖克利的职务,以惩罚他在种族、性别和智商等远远超出其专业领域的问题上的可恶观点。 如果,为了争论,我们将自己与肖克利关于这些主题的出版物中充满政治色彩的内容分开,我们可以将他在这一领域的最小学术贡献与鲍林的维生素 C 崩溃进行比较。 我们应该取消鲍林超越他的能力范围并提出医学上危险的主张吗? 哪一个是更大的不端行为——发表含有优生内容的论文或宣传维生素 C 可以治愈癌症? 请注意,在鲍林和肖克利的案例中,有组织的怀疑论的默顿原则已经有效地将小麦与谷壳分开:虽然肖克利详细的平衡文件被引用了近 7000 次,但他关于种族和智商的论文却有一个宏大的共 15 次引用。

深入挖掘肖克利的案例,他的许多传记作者将他有据可查的反社会特征和行为(社交退缩和偏执狂)归因于精神障碍,并将他描述为高功能自闭症患者。 在他的《基因》一书中,穆克吉使用 Shockley 来说明基因编辑的伦理难题,指出相同的基因组合既可以是“天才”,也可以是“疾病”。 如果肖克利的可悲观点是他精神障碍的结果怎么办? 我们应该取消他吗?

那将是有能力的!

或者也许肖克利只是个混蛋?

我能想到四个非常了解肖克利的伟人:约翰·巴丁(两个诺贝尔物理学奖的唯一获得者)、罗伯特·诺伊斯(“硅谷市长”)、戈登·摩尔(摩尔定律)和弗雷德·特曼(可能是“硅谷之父”称号的最佳人选,尽管这通常是给肖克利的)。 前三人受不了肖克利,而特曼喜欢他,给了他在斯坦福大学的工作。

……那么,为什么我们不应该取笑那些声称感觉不同并重命名眼前所有事物的人呢? 毕竟,重命名方程比重命名城市、建筑物或地标更容易。

答案很简单:我们的未来岌岌可危。 作为一个社区,我们面临着一个重要的选择。 我们可以屈服于极左意识形态,余生追鬼猎巫,改写历史,将科学政治化,重新定义语言元素,将 STEM(科学、技术、工程和数学)教育变成一场闹剧. 或者,我们可以坚持民主社会的一项关键原则——自由和不受审查的思想交流——并继续我们的核心使命,追求真理,将注意力集中在解决人类真正重要的问题上。

历史的教训是无数而明确的。 尽管拥有丰富的自然和人力资源,苏联还是输掉了冷战,崩溃了,崩溃了。 有趣的是,即使是最专制政权的领导人也能够在某种程度上理解极权主义科学的弱点。 例如,在大恐怖中,Kapitsa 和 Ioffe 能够说服斯大林相信物理学对军事和技术优势的重要性,以至于他撤销了一些逮捕; 例如,福克和朗道被释放(然而,估计有 10% 的物理学家在此期间丧生)。 四十年代后期,在核物理学家解释说没有相对论就没有核弹之后,斯大林推翻了计划中的反对物理学的运动,并指示贝利亚给物理学家一些空间; 这导致苏联科学家在多个领域取得重大进展和成就。 然而,无论是斯大林还是后来的苏联领导人都无法完全放开控制。 政府对科学的控制被证明是一个巨大的失败,并且试图通过间谍活动来弥补东西方之间日益扩大的差距也无济于事。 今天,俄罗斯在技术和生活质量方面都无可救药地落后于西方。 …

  1. Lots of good hard scientists are getting their careers wrecked by the Woke but that’s either for being white and/or male or not being politically pious enough

    It’s very sad, but the problem is, these scientists signaled their weakness decades ago. They’ve always “avoided trouble” with Leftist militants by either remaining silent when the Left said crazy things or by meekly surrendering when pushed.

    It’s not so much their careers I mourn, but all the life-saving breakthroughs we’ll never see.

  3. scrivener3 说:

    对 wokism 和马克思主义的持久和无休止的官方支持是因为他们每个人都在他们的时代为统治者和他们的官僚机构提供更多权力。

    如果没有我们仁慈的统治者,白人将残忍地对待非白人。

  4. Yet a thousand “Conservatives” could read this (very excellent) Steve Sailer post, but 没有人敢称它为共产主义*. Partly as a reply to Rob McX from the last post, I’ll state again that it’s not all about ideology, except for some of the die-hard instigators (your Che’s, Mao’s, and Pol Pots, perhaps).

    No, the wokesters don’t know who what the proletariat is and have to go to the internet every time they try to spell Bourgeoisie (just as I do) . They are the same, though – read through Anna’s description of that “relatively mellow” era in the USSR. It’s the same people today. It’s about resentfulness and destruction of traditional society, plain and simple.

    Also, I wondered about Anna Krylov’s part here:

    就像在苏联时代一样,审查制度正被更大的利益所证明。 而在 1950 年,更大的好处是推动世界革命(在苏联;在美国,更大的好处意味着与共产主义作斗争)

    I’m not sure if she’s trying to imply something about that last part. YES, Americans WERE fighting Communism for the greater good. (Is she implying censorship on this behalf here? If so, she is full of it.) Unfortunately most of the Americans fighting Communism completely missed the internal war with the Commies. They missed that there even WAS one going on.

    I’m in the middle of the Stanton Evans book 被历史列入黑名单 about Joe McCarthy. Holy crap, there was so much infiltration in the State Department, going back to the 1930s! I had no idea that American Communists played a part in derailing any kind of diplomacy with Japan in 1939-’40 or so, purely so that the Japanese would be too busy fighting the US to fight the USSR, the pet project of said Commies. Yes, Mr. Evans, like the railroaded (by one Millard Tydings) Senator McCarthy, names names. We need to do the same today.

    Openly practicing religion could lead to more grim consequences, up to imprisonment.

    That is simply not true. Practically every city had a functional church with regular services. It was definitely very bad for a white collar career to be openly religious but nobody was imprisoned over it in post- Khrushchev era.

    Once I got a notice for promoting an imperialistic agenda by showing up in jeans for an informal school event.

    That’s either bullshit or something quite exceptional. She is slightly younger than I am and I have never heard anything like that. Schools had dress codes but they did not extend to any informal events, even on school property.

    The tendency of many Soviet emigres to exaggerate the hardships of their early lives is very annoying.

  16. @Loyalty Over IQ Worship

    “It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines,” stated Dr. Marcia Angell, the former editor of The New England Journal of Medicine. “I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor,” she wrote in a 2009 piece titled “Drug Companies & Doctors: A Story of Corruption.”

    Years later, Richard Horton, editor of The Lancet echoed this sentiment: “… Something has gone fundamentally wrong with one of our greatest human creations … The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness.” READ REST: https://www.ecofarmingdaily.com/the-faux-faith-of-modern-science-prescription-drugs/

    America was always exceptional for its tolerance. The Manhattan Project employed dozens of leftist and dissident scientists to build the first nuclear weapon. After WWII America captured many Nazi rocket scientists and instead of hanging them for war crimes (they killed many innocent Londoners) they were integrated. Intolerance to difference is the royal road to decadence. Pity for this once great nation.

    The Left tiptoed away from the American working class starting in the 1960s. Look up the Hard Hat Riot in New York City and the Busing Riots in Boston–there’s some iconic photography out there.

    Basically, the Progressives/Marxists/Liberals/Bolsheviks (I’ll just call them “Marxists”) discovered that the working class was heavily white, straight, armed, religious, and patriotic. So the Marxists re-worked their theories into biological leninism: it turns out the perfect socialist is non-white, queer, mentally deranged etc. (Another Dad terms it “minoritarianism,” which works too).

    When was the last time you heard the Democrats refer to themselves as the “party of the working man? Now it’s the Krazy Kat-lady Koalition, Sailer’s Circular Firing Squad, the black/POC/jewish/homosexual/neurotic female/government employee coalition.

    That’s funny because the Nazis also had trouble with these same sciences, which they considered to be “Jewish” while Newtonian physics was “German”. Einstein it goes without saying but then they started going after Heisenberg and calling him a “white Jew” even though he wasn’t Jewish at all. (Unzites continue this great tradition to this day by accusing anyone they don’t like of being secretly Jewish). Luckily, Heisenberg’s mother was friends with Himmler’s mother so she wrote to her son and told him to stop being so hard on Wernie and that seemed to have worked.

    我认为极权主义者通常希望世界成为一个有序的地方,每个人和一切都遵守(他们的)规则,因此任何需要不确定性或模棱两可的东西都会威胁到他们对有序宇宙的黑白看法地方。 所以同性恋和变性人威胁到他们对性别的看法,犹太人威胁到他们对宗教的看法,现代物理学威胁到他们对时间和空间的看法,等等。

  27. “Today Russia is hopelessly behind the West, in both technology and quality of life.”

    But they pretty much have always been for most of the last century. It’s not like there was a golden age for Russians leading the world in technology and quality of life during the 20th century.

    Ironically, over the last two decades Russian lifespans has been increasing by nearly ten full years. One of the lowest points (especially for men) was during the ’90’s, when Russians averaged early 60’s. Now it’s about early 70’s, so in point of fact they’re starting to catch up to the west in median lifespan, which is one direct factor related to the quality of life.

    Perhaps life for Russians under Putin isn’t as bad as the current administration would have everyone to believe. Certainly it’s greatly improved if compared to the regimes of Stalin and Krushev.

    But Brandon would have it otherwise, and in truth, for Brandon is an honorable man.

    For anyone who doesn’t know, Chanda is a 7/8 white scientist who is “black” for American racial justice purposes. As a white (Jewish) scientist she would be considered mediocre at best but by “black” standards she is a genius. As you can see from this article, instead of actually doing physics she spends most of her time kvetching about how black women are not allowed to do physics.

    Basically, the Progressives/Marxists/Liberals/Bolsheviks (I’ll just call them “Marxists”) discovered that the working class was heavily white, straight, armed, religious, and patriotic.

    And on the side of South Vietnam and our men fighting there, about which the biggest complaint was “they have one hand tied behind their backs.” For that matter I’ve read the Nixon Administration was surprised to learn the USAF and Navy and Marine aviation weren’t going all out when some new plans were presented or whatever.

    The Hard Hat Riot you refer to was specifically about this issue, 每个维基百科 started as a construction and office worker attack on “around 1,000 demonstrators affiliated with the student strike of 1970. The students were protesting the May 4 Kent State shootings and the Vietnam War, following the April 30 announcement by President Richard Nixon of the U.S. invasion of neutral Cambodia.”

    Grew to 20,000 people, 100 injured, 6 arrested but only one of them a construction worker, three weeks later “President Nixon then invited the hardhat leaders to Washington, D.C., and accepted a hardhat from them.” I don’t remember this riot, just a year or two too early for when I became that sort of politically aware, but can attest to the 时代精神 from my part of what eventually became deep Red state America.

    You can read accounts of “hippies” going door to door in working class neighborhoods and discovering the above to their horror.

    It’s very sad, but the problem is, these scientists signaled their weakness decades ago. They’ve always “avoided trouble” with Leftist militants by either remaining silent when the Left said crazy things or by meekly surrendering when pushed.

    The watershed moment was late Sixties when several university presidents were forced to step down after they tried to resist student radicals. Other administrators got the message and their modus operandi is instant capitulation.

    Another problem are Republicans who simply don’t know what goes on at universities, what the diversity statements are, what DEI is, etc.

  38. the Soviet Union was preferable in some ways to what’s coming to the US. Soviets were allowed to move engineering forward. there was no homosexual agenda. and they were allowed to remain european, so if they were able to survive communism, they could recover later on.

    that won’t be the case in the US. remaining european is by far the most important part. you can survive a terrible century if you can remain european. if you become Brazil in between here and there, you can never recover from anything ever again.

    Soviets Union people were never productive scientists in general. they aren’t now, with no communism to stop them. very little science comes out of that area, nor will it ever. part of that is due to not paying. science pays nothing over there. engineering, yes. mathematics, yes. science, no. medicine, no. the Soviets allowed 2 parts of STEM, interfered with the other 2 parts. but even without interference, the trends remain the same.

    of course making existing science from other places into communist purity tests does make your own country much worse. when some guy with a gun is saying that growing food works the way the leader says it works, and not the way the biologists say it works, you’re gonna have a problem. the US is entering this phase now with energy. Democrat morons say energy works a certain way, so that’s how it will ‘work’ in the US for a long time, since they’ll mostly have monopoly control.

    One potential approach would be to organize something like an alliance of professionals, trade workers, and unskilled employees around the idea of mutual protection against the woke. It would be something like Solidarity in Poland. It could operate in the open doing things like collecting dues, filing lawsuits, organizing strikes and slow-downs, petitioning local governments, and campaigning for candidates when appropriate. Its core purpose, at least at first, would be to provide relief against DIE. (It’s bravado to suggest that individuals storm woke embankments alone.) The Poles managed this against the Communists.

    War separates failure from success, and what works is either promoted or the regime is defeated. That is always true. It is why the Wehrmacht allowed and even promoted former Communists and decorated them for bravery, as well as other common soldiers, far in excess of the Imperial decorations and promotions which were largely reserved for the Officer Class. This is why the German Army in WWII far over-performed relative to its equipment, its resources, and its officer class. Ability counts, and in our time when everything gets ever more complex and thus powerful but at the same time vulnerable, ability and iq and dligence counts even more.

    Given that various Neo-Cons, idiots, and those who refuse to learn have provoked a new Cold War with the world’s major manufacturing power (China) for a news cycle win, and the world’s major oil/gas/agricultural power (Russia), the ability of the US as a maritime power is paramount. Only by producing more and more power will the US be able to even exist much less exert dominance over the hostile rivals. This is just fact.

    it didn’t matter that the Soviets produced little original science. as soon as anybody in the world produces new science, the rest of the world gets it too. like the entire rest of the world, all the Soviets had to do was sit back and wait for other people to develop new important work. then they absorbed it.

    how much of the modern technological world did China produce? almost none of it. how advanced are the big cities in China in 2022? very. they can chill, drink some beer, then steal every single thing you produce at your expense. worked hard for 20 years to invent something that took a thousand experts to create? thanks. that’s ours new too.

    what’s under attack today are most of the SOURCES of original science production. direct attacks on western university science systems, which produce almost all the original work, means global science production will slow down significantly. this is a MUCH bigger problem for everybody, than say, Soviets allowing Lysenko to deliberately botch their own agricultural science. the rest of the world was aware he was dead wrong, and ignored him.

  115. There are basically two approaches to demonization of sciences (and all mental endeavors) in the modern world:

    a) you don’t like people, or some ideas they espouse, so you vilify them

    b) parts of science fundamentally disagree with your central world-view, you they must be attacked

    In the case of German Physics, it was a coincidence that Einstein was Jewish (after all, Lorentz and Poincare contributed much to SR, and Hilbert to GR). But Einstein was also a pacifist & generally unacceptable, plus prominently Jewish.

    Nazi party had to make ideological somersaults here: in theory, Jews were too materialist & empirical to rise to the heights of German thought (as exemplified by Hegel, or Wagner in arts etc.). Just, in this case Jews were accused of unnecessary abstractions as part of their “racial” spirit- which run contrary to their earthbound empiricism elsewhere.

    So, had the whole relativity structure been built by an “Aryan”, Nazi world-view would have found nothing objectionable in it.

    Here, personal is political. Wokes belong to that category.

    In the case of Stalinism, it was a more serious thing, more than anything personal. Relativity and quantum theory put limits to human knowledge, and that was unacceptable to Marxist-Leninist dogma (for instance, they were staunch Darwinists, which was respectable 19th C science. But, putting limits to knowledge? No).

    The same, or even worse, goes with Lysenkoism. Marxist myth requires something like Lamarckism, preached by Michurin & others.

    In theory, Leninism-Stalinism is, in principle, against anything that limits human knowledge or insists on some pesky laws that go against voluntarism. Science is good if it unmasks old prejudices (religion etc.); it is bad when it goes against self-deification of man.

    This is the case of Shockley. He could have been the sweetest man on earth, but his ideas on eugenics & IQ fundamentally undermine liberal dogmas. In his case- it is more than personal.

    Basically, the Progressives/Marxists/Liberals/Bolsheviks (I’ll just call them “Marxists”) discovered that the working class was heavily white, straight, armed, religious, and patriotic.

    None of these were problems for the Left in the 1960s. The problem was that the American “working class” in the 1960s earned good wages, owned houses and cars, was represented by strong labor unions and consequently had no interest in revolutions. There was nothing left for the traditional left to do so the left got captured by over educated progressive types with no connection to the working class.

Liberals and temporizers in the Republican Party were notable for very inchoate and reflexively accommodationist views on just about everything. There were and are no Rockefeller Republican or Modern Republican publications and institutes because they were people who were allergic to systematic thinking about anything. See Wm.

  119. 我还没有看到有人争辩说乔治·弗洛伊德的死意味着弦理论一定是对的(或错的)。 但谁知道明天会带来什么。

    这里有一个可能不明显的联系,但它是真实的,应该得到承认。

    需要假设 XNUMX 个物理维度以使他们的理论起作用的人只是更 STEMy、更夸张的版本,他们需要假设巨大的、无形的制度种族主义云来解释黑人表现不佳。 那些以种族主义——这和女权主义——的名义影响解构社会的密集学术文章,绝非空谈。 解构是合法的,至少在同样意义上,印象派画家将场景“解构”成一阵笔触是合法的。 这就是为什么我过去将进步左派思想称为“室内乐”的原因,这一点并没有被普遍理解。

    为了澄清问题,我们可以这样说:“说到绘画,我们可以说,鉴于西方画家受过训练来思考他们的主题和媒介,印象派是传统颓废的标志但它同时也是它的高潮和逻辑终点。 在创造深度、运动、光线和阴影的幻觉中,几个世纪以来,画家们深化了有一天会作为印象派出现的技术。 事实上,印象派是这一切一直趋向的最终形态。 画家现在完全意识到自己的手段和技巧,开始对他以前服务的媒介采取讽刺和愤世嫉俗的眼光。 并且,可以说,他自己作为一个自我,作为一个 老师, 不再努力展现主题的本质,而是展示形式本身,以展示他如何使其在他的指挥下摇摆和跳舞。 这里有至高无上的掌握——因此没有其他可实现的。 ”

    在完全相同的意义上,我们可以说,鉴于西方学者被训练去思考他们的目的的方式——即延续西方对个性和功利主义的巨大伦理冲动; 西方对“自由”和实在法的血腥政治纪念碑; 它的革命、宪法和权利清单——进步左派既是西方传统的颓废,又是其逻辑终点。 这终于是哲学家们第一次反抗王位和祭坛时所要求的“自由”。 它最终表明自己是摆脱历史的自由,摆脱自然的自由,摆脱现实本身的自由。

    无一例外,所有西方文化创造都走上了同样的道路。 毫无疑问,政治在提出其不断增加的“权利”目录(实际上只不过是一系列幼稚的要求被愚蠢地写入法律而无视 应该提供他们或 形成一种),还有莫奈之后的绘画,尼采之后的哲学,瓦格纳之后的音乐,以及爱因斯坦和玻尔之后的物理学。 硬科学从未对这一趋势免疫。 事实上,在某些方面,硬科学 开始 这种趋势,或者至少为其提供了继续下去所需的知识面。

    不要误会:现代物理学的“怪异” is 颓废。 狭义相对论奇怪地坚持抛弃同时性,量子力学接受非定域性——这些都不是可以存在的物理世界的特征,也不是遵循思想规则的物理理论的特征。 但在 20 世纪初出现了问题。 精确理解的意愿失败了,物理学家并没有承认他们的过程的根源一定存在根本性的错误,而是本末倒置。 他们宣称这些古怪的理论是必要的,因为宇宙根本无法正常理解。 “我们错误地认为时间和空间是一致的,”他们说。 此后,对这种意志的失败犹豫不决,只是表明自己是一个非专家,一个笨蛋。

    尽管它经常被否认,但有一个深刻而深刻的 必要 现代物理学与进步政治的关系。 相对论可以说是物理学家的独立宣言:“我们认为这个真理是不言而喻的,所有的光速生来都是平等的”——因此,宇宙的其余部分必须围绕这一断言弯曲和扭曲。 这与政治主张相吻合,与所有实际经验相反,世界各地的所有人都同样适用于相同的权利和义务。

    然而,尽管指出进步人士声称男人是女人的荒谬仍然有些容易,但即使在今天,绝大多数人也会欣然接受物理学家关于波是粒子的说法——因为科学!™。 你必须要么全部站在这些事情的一边,要么全部站在另一边。 西方集体做出了选择。 但仍然渴望真相的个人必须与西方分开,做出不同的选择。

    Years later, Richard Horton, editor of The Lancet echoed this sentiment: “… Something has gone fundamentally wrong with one of our greatest human creations … The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue.

    No respect whatsoever for Horton given his unapologetic publishing of frauds the in rag that “柳叶刀” has been for decades. Also supports “climate change,” uses his platform to attack Israel WRT to Gaza which might be legit but has no place in a scientific/medical journal etc.

    He published the paper that started the “scientific” part of anti-vaxxing; perhaps cannot blame him for publishing it, since the white line fraud including coordination lawyers might not have been visible from the paper itself, it’s what happened afterwards. The other really big one was the Iraqi war casualties paper which was based on clearly bogus survey methods which he also made into personal attacks on Bush and Blair.

    You really want to separate political activism from science if you care at all about the latter. His statement which you quote is also too broad brush; his field of medicine is very possibly that bad, looks like psychology is much worse, maybe as high as 90%, but harder fields aren’t so bad assuming you for example remove from consideration papers from the PRC where the CCP set up a fatally bad incentive system.

    The CPI opening ceremony apparently liked the Internationale, the national anthem of the 1944 USSR, followed by the USA Star Spangled Banner that was recorded during World War 2.

    In 1944, to honor the Allied victory in Italy, legendary counductor Arturo Toscanini–a refugee from Fascisim in his home country–decided to conduct a performance of Verdi’s “Hymn of the Nations”. “Hymn” is a composition that Verdi orginally built around the national anthems of Britain, France, and Italy. In order to honor all four of the major Allies, Toscanini decided to add “The Star Spangled Banner” for the U.S. and “The Internationale” for the Soviet Union. The music was performed by the NBC Symphony Orchestra, with the Westminister Choir and the great tenor Jan Peerce as soloist; conducted by Toscanini. It was filmed as a featurette to be shown in movie theaters, and was narrated by Burgess Meredith.

    In the early 50’s, at the height of the Red Scare and McCarthyism, U.S. censors excised the portion of this performance that featured the “Internationale”.

    For years the sequence containing The Internationale was considered forever lost. But recently a copy of this missing piece of film was rediscovered in Alaska. So now this rousing rendition of the Internationale–together with chorale and orchestra under the direction of a great conductor–can be enjoyed again.

    What is wrong with that? Researchers are the most steeped in knowledge.

    I take it you haven’t been taught by STEM researchers in decades? In my experience at a top US engineering school a couple decades ago, they are horrible lecturers, just phoning it in while focusing on the research that was actually what they were hired for and evaluated on. My understanding is they would all fight the dean to lower their teaching load and it showed: I would routinely call out math mistakes in the equations they were often forced to write in chalk up on a board. Every semester, I would attend the first couple weeks of lectures, find that they were horrible or just reading the book to me, and usually not attend the rest of the term, only showing up to turn in homework or take exams.

    Others confirm similar experiences with college STEM researchers teaching.

    Having researchers teach undergrads may have made sense a century ago, when colleges were a small affair attended by an elite few and theory wasn’t so far ahead of undergraduate textbooks. Today, it makes absolutely no sense, as researchers are now highly specialized and far removed from the undergrad fundamentals. You’d be much better off having motivated grad students or other non-traditional adepts teach: they’re closer to the undergrad material and some of them may actually enjoy teaching or want to enlighten.

    What lecture and exam formats do you recommend?

    The lecture format itself was completely outdated at least 50 years ago: ever since printing became cheap in the last century, all classrooms should have been flipped, ie assign readings at home and spend the class time going over it in Socratic discussion, driven by common misunderstandings in the homework (yes, I know many kids don’t want to read: guess what, most of those kids zone out during lectures too). That’s what should’ve been done 50+ years ago but educators are so stupid and traditional, it was never done (I had a few who experimented with such new methods, including the odious group problem-solving, and I’m grateful I got to try those methods that worked).

    Now that we have online learning, forget it, the colleges, universities, and schools will all be dead and gone in the next 10-40 years. It should’ve been well underway already, but education is a weird market: parents buy it for their kids, who are too young to know any better, and the adults are largely too conventional and old to realize the internet allows much better than what they imbibed pre-internet.

    Online learning will allow each person to learn how he does best: some do better with recorded videos, others with reading, maybe some with just audio recordings, and a few may mix it up depending on the subject. I learn best reading by myself combined with some live Q&A for parts I didn’t understand, supplemented by some recorded audio and video as relevant. You may prefer a different mix: the great thing about online learning is that we’ll be able to provide such tailored learning at a fraction of the cost of current education, ie an order of magnitude better and a couple orders of magnitude cheaper. If you think current educational institutions will be able to compete with that, you should have your head examined (current MOOCs and the like are trash, just like the early search engines before google).

    As for exam formats, multiple choice and long written formats will be largely thrown out. I had an innovative Physics class that had us work through homework problems online where you’d only input the final numerical answer and the software would generate problems with different values for each student, so you couldn’t simply copy someone else’s final answer. It would give you automated hints based on common wrong answers. Something like that but evolved much more is likely how students will be tested continuously over the course of a term, sitting for a couple exams is hilariously outdated.

    What math should not be taught, and what math should be taught in its stead?

    我有 this argument on this blog before, see my comments in this thread. Basically, the old calculus and other pre-computer analytic math is completely unused in practice now that it’s all done by software, so most undergrads should just learn to use such software and a few may want to learn more deeply the statistical and computational methods that are baked into that software.

    Not sure what these folks did next. (Post on internet forums I guess.)

    I wrote this as a joke, but thinking about it now, yes that’s exactly what happened. Internet activism has replaced real-world activism.

    The kind of people who got into survivalism in the 1970s, and militias in the 1990s, now rack up thousands of posts on internet forums (like this one) instead.

    Yeah, I think this is true across the political/ social spectrum. It just proves that Marx hadn’t seen nothin’ yet!

    It also divorces advocacy from real world concerns since the internet allows for such specialized obsessions. It’s also so fractured that it would be very hard to build enough of an IRL coalition to organize around real concrete change.

    The real effect we can generally have in life is on our own families and communities but this gets pushed aside by national political obsessions and armchair activism.

    “Her wiki page is curiously large, btw, and manages to mention how great she is dozens of times without really getting into why she’s great, except that she apparently came up with something called ‘the spin flip-method’ which isn’t explained and hasn’t got a wiki page. Oh, and she has something to do with a company that writes quantum chemistry software.”

    Thanks for the heads-up. That’s not an encyclopedia article it’s an advertisement. Then again, that’s how the pretend encyclopedia works–it’s divided between hagiographies and demonographies.

    I just found out that Glenn Loury posts a transcript of his excerpted video clips at his Substack:

    Soviet science produced tons of excellent theoretical results. The best results didn’t get turned into technology or \$\$\$ but it does point to how serious Soviet scientists were.

    Ditto for Hungary. Tiny population but amazing theoretical results.

    Science != Technology. Although with enough time, theoretical results can actually become useful in the real world.
