sorry I was at work yestday and now I am at work again, 
no it is Hegel who proclaims that history  there for the 
histor of science is guided by a process of enlightened
progress. well yes and that science claims to be objective,
with it is, in my opinion but 'we' or humans are not 'objective'
we are as nietzsche say in one of his essays on the back of great 
tiger being pulled through a forest of dreams. 
And I this is the problem with science is claims to be beyond myth,
when it is fact the myth of our age. heiddegger also says that 
science does not want to talk about nothing is important , science
has nothing to say about nothing, and that is a problem. In 
the sence that science makes certian problems go away in order
to create what faucault calls 'postivism' and I think in ways this
positivism is the demon of socrates described in the birth of tragedy.
how is it that knowledge became good? By excluding the old truths of myth
which held man in the belly of the earth.
I have to get back to work but I will try and write some latter.
