The problem with economic growth as usually defined is that it doesn't put a price on air pollution and resulting rates of lung disease, except insofar as that raises the worker absentee rate. It is about growth in things that can be bought and sold, not things of value, like the beauty of a forest. The problem for economic growth is not that it is inherently wrong but that the whole world must soon stop having it, or, at least, having it in the form of the kind of goods we have been having.

Usually, it is the token of more than one type. An utterance may give an indication of (be a token for) a set of words which form a grammatical sentence in a language (a sentence-type) and at the same time, through the way it is spoken, or other aspects of its relation to context, give other tokens.

Only the 'hard sciences' are really knowledge: The discoveries of the physical sciences have been the most significant mainly because they have challenged the conventional wisdom and the church. However, the methods of science have been extrapolated to the social sciences and this seems to be largely invalid unless it is demonstratable in empirical terms. I know what he means! 'The dominant model of English teachers was hermeneutic. The model of critical method (in the literary sense) was the gradual discovery and construction of interpretations, often personal interpretations.
