Don’t Turn Away From the Art of Life | New York Times | February 2016

[The] humanistic model is sloppy. It has no bottom line. It is not geared
for maximum productivity. It will not increase your arsenal of facts or
data. But it rivals with rockets when it comes to flight and the
visions it enables. And it will help create denser and more generous
lives, lives aware that others are not only other, but are real. In this
regard, it adds depth and resonance to what I regard as the shadowy,
impalpable world of numbers and data: empirical notations that have no
interest nor purchase in interiority, in values; notations that offer
the heart no foothold.
