How much wood could a woodchuck chuck?

I’m going through some old files here in the lab, and came across an interesting book review by Jim Fitting from 1972.  He was looking at 3 books about ‘Science and Archaeology’, and asking the question anthropologists still debate today ‘how much are we natural science, social science and humanities?’.  Fitting was always a good writer, so it’s a fun read, regardless of your opinions on HIS opinions.  Here’s my favorite quote:

 

“But if the end purpose of archaeology is the study of subjects rather than objects, then does the objective study of subjectivity come any closer to reality that the subjective study of subjectivity? – Fitting, Science, 1972 Vol 175 p 977.

 

Try saying that five times fast.
