Steven Pinker addresses the outdated conviction that Science is incompatible with the Humanities. http://goo.gl/T8XPux

"One would think that writers in the humanities would be delighted and energized by the efflorescence of new ideas from the sciences. But one would be wrong. Though everyone endorses science when it can cure disease, monitor the environment, or bash political opponents, the intrusion of science into the territories of the humanities has been deeply resented."
