Inspiring... but up its own arse?

I enjoy Edge. More than that I think it is the online equivalent of an ancient learned academic institution, a font of ideas and a hub for intellectual cross pollination. But it does do a lot of 'Wanking' as well.

For example:

"There's no need to use scientific jargon when it doesn't pertain. Nor is there cause to fall into radical epistemological relativism..." from the essay REGARDING A NEW HUMANISM.

If this is deliberate it is supremely dry humour, otherwise it is a contradiction embedded within the proof.
