Re: Yet again on hearing aids

I quite like the strawman argument that there is only 'science' and
'witchcraft', with nothing in between! -though I'm not quite sure that's
what you meant. I think the point you raised was whether one can adhere to a
method that is only partly scientific. Inevitable, I'd say; surely, science
is a method of enquiry, not a clinically prescriptive one?
