The Humanities Under Fire? Hendrik (Rik) Pinxten Abstract Humanities move in a direction of controlled and politically directed disciplines. The so-called ‘corporatization’ of the sciences touches the humanities also: there is ever less free research.

But this is sharply divided from the properly factual investigations of so-called positive economics, and it is hardly a matter of debate that it is the latter that is the more prestigious branch of the discipline. In common with traditional positivism and contemporary scientism, the underlying assumption of this distinction is that there is a set of economic facts and 20 J. 2 And in fact normative economics has itself tended to reinforce this perspective, and has therefore tried to limit itself to the question whether there are economic actions that are indisputably beneficial.

These are certainly to be facts. But there might also be a question about inputs. In generating a fact, dinosaurs are extinct, say, one needs to feed some facts in. (These are dinosaur bones. Our best tests suggest they are 80 million years old. No dinosaurs have been observed recently. ) So these inputs had better be facts too. There are some immediate worries. One might reasonably object to the suggestion that the only products of science are facts with the observation that science often produces things.
