 Reply:   Wholesome truth
Replied by(Unpolluted) Replied on (8/Jun/2011)

In this article, Professor Khursheed has integrated the facts into the wholesomeness of truth, which always involves human feelings, spirit, and soul. One of the greatest distortions of western social sciences is to systematically exclude these, in the name of "science", in imitation of the methods of natural sciences, ignoring the fundamental differences between the subjects of natural and social sciences. The subject of natural sciences is nature and its elements, components, and forces, while the subject of social sciences involves humans, their social formations, cultures, sociology, and psychology etc. Even though human beings are also part of nature, they also have unique characteristics, like soul, spirit, feelings, intellect, drives, desires etc. Nothing is more unscientific than to exclude these from social and politico-economic discourse and analyses. And yet, that is the standard practice in the West and has also become the dominant practice in the East. It is refreshing to see that in Pakistan there still are people like Professor Khursheed who write about such subjects holistically and truly scientifically.
