A small but illuminating example of the pervasiveness of anti-Enlightenment thought today is how scientists themselves have taken to styling themselves as creative. But nothing could be more contrary to the spirit of science than the opinion that the scientist fabricates rather than discovers his results. When every man was understood to be essentially a reasoner, the scientist could be understood to be a perfection of what all men wanted to be. Now the scientist scrambles to recover his position as the perfection of what all men want to be; but what all men want to be has changed.
