Thoughts on possible origins/amplifiers for different mindsets between logic/engineering/physical sciences vs social sciences/humanities/etc.
I suspect traceable foundations in the modern West may go down these lines (just an educated hunch):
Calvinism and its branches put logic / reason first, and through the centuries, reasoned their way out of God and kept on reasoning. No heart in it – it’s all mechanical, law based, rules, facts, ontological. Went down the engineering line as it were. Physical sciences and Southern Baptist fed alike, estranged cousins. Snopes trial. That sort of thing.
Arminianism and its branches were heart. Faith. Always room for the unexpected. The effect with unknown cause. Humanity. Do good works because doing good its its own reward. Liberal Christianity. Humanism.
This is more of the social side of things. Congressional. People working together. Social movements. Free will. Choices. Uncertainties. Post modernism. Relativistic strains. Epistemology.
