"In the 'Conjectural Beginning of Human History' Kant describes the steps that take man from the first inklings of his status as an end in himself to out-and-out political life. Man first comes to the realization that he may make use of animals but not man for his own needs when he begins to keep herds. But the nomadic herdsman's existence eventually turns into an agricultural one, with a period of conflict between herdsman and farmer marking the transition. The intrusion of the herdsman's animals on the farmer's crops was probably the occasion of the first use of force to discourage encroachment. Farmers and herdsmen soon began to keep out of one another's way, however, and agriculture began to develop in earnest."

-- Tom Sorrell, Scientism: Philosophy and the Infatuation with Science (Routledge, 1991)

Or, as Oscar Hammerstein II had it, "The farmer and the cowhand should be friends."


"I had spent too long laboring on one article -- not lengthy, but dense, and entirely about canals, a subject I knew and cared little about, but chose it because the field was relatively untouched, and then having discovered that the subject bored me, I continued on with it anyway."

-- Shiela Heti, Ticknor
