It is beginning to bother me that we allow a lot of time thinking about what quantum physics or computational theories mean about our world, but we generally quickly decide to write off considering the implications of anthropology or economics as outside our purview.
The soft-science oriented questions I see get threatened right away with closure, compared to the grinding repetition of simulation theory questions or physics inquiries, because we foresee them getting either very few answers, or a lot that are off-topic or mostly opinion.
It seems to me that this is acquiescing to the Internet's strong engineering bias: the softer sciences just are not real to us, nor is normal philology outside of a narrow band of critical theory which nonspecialists consider impenetrable.
While it is the basis of the sciences, philosophy really is a humanist discipline. Should we do something to improve the quality of more humanist or soft-science questions and answers, so we won't close them just because the answers are bound to be offensive or baseless?
