A hierarchy of science

Filed Under:

Reported today by FreeBSD's ''fortune'' program:

Psychologists think they're experimental psychologists.
Experimental psychologists think they're biologists.
Biologists think they're biochemists.
Biochemists think they're chemists.
Chemists think they're physical chemists.
Physical chemists think they're physicists.
Physicists think they're theoretical physicists.
Theoretical physicists think they're mathematicians.
Mathematicians think they're metamathematicians.
Metamathematicians think they're philosophers.
Philosophers think they're gods.

The place for computer science? This needs an extension:

  • computer scientists think they're logicians;
  • logicians think they're metamathematicians;
  • back to the list above.
