Notes on the Cultural Revolution
by Claes G. Ryn
In this 1970 essay, the future professor makes a classic argument that scientism is a true cultural revolution, an attempt to deny our true humanity.

The survival of any culture, or of the material fabric of civilization, requires vigorous imagination and readiness to sacrifice. By dullness and complacency are intellectual and social orders undone.
