coming soon, and a quote

I'm sorry about the dearth of posts here of late... life's busy! I'm working on a rather long post at the moment, however, and it should be up in a few days. For a teaser(because everyone is indubitably so curious): truth, damnation, and Charles Williams.

In the meantime, enjoy this quote from the introduction of Eric Voegelin's The New Science of Politics:
If the adequacy of a method is not measured by its usefulness to the purpose of science, if on the contrary the use of a method is made the criterion of science, then the meaning of science as a truthful account of the structure of reality, as the theoretical orientation of man in his world, and as the great instrument for man's understanding of his own position in the universe is lost.
