Blog #7

In this blog I would like to discuss a quote mentioned by Carlson in Chapter 17 of Nature, Aesthetic and Environmentalism.

"A more correct categorization in science is one that over time makes the natural world seem more intelligible , more comprehensible to those whose science it is. Our science appeals to certain kinds of qualities to accomplish this. These qualities are ones such as order, regularity, harmony, balance, tension, conflict, resolution and so forth."

This quote really seems to appeal to me because being an environmental science major I can really agree with this statement. Also these qualities are accurate in terms of things that our science appeals to.
