The laws of the media, in tetrad form, bring logos and formal cause up to date to reveal analytically the structure of all human artefacts.
There is, I believe, a great deal to be learned from faith traditions – from the ordinary people who practice them today; from their sacred texts and writings and artefacts; and from their histories. Faith traditions present a rich and diverse vein of human experience, and I am convinced that as with other humanities a serious interest in them is a cultural education in itself.yakoub islam
The scientific world picture does not include ... things that have not been constructed, that are not understood as artefacts ... Instead of the final cause one starts to speak about purpose, which nature itself does not have. Only humans can set aims and achieve them by their activities if they know the laws of nature and set up various processes based on them and organise them purposively.(2001) Rein Vihalemm, Chemistry as an Interesting Subject for the Philosophy of Science
