From the New York Times:
From my perspective as editor in chief of American Anthropologist, the flagship journal of the American Anthropological Association, I think that removing "science" from its long-range statement doesn't deepen a rift so much as widen a misunderstanding. I hope the association will reconsider because anthropology helps broaden the definition of science itself. Science takes place not just in laboratories but in field sites; it involves not just experiments but forms of nonreplicable observation, and not just in anthropology but in sciences as diverse as zoology and astronomy.
