Quantification seems to be the trend in a number of disciplines. Contemporary Social Science research, for example, is increasingly becoming more inclined to quantitative methods, as they produce repeatable conclusions. Even the discipline of philosophy, under the influence of the analytic tradition, has become more mathematically rigorous in he advent of different technologies. Of course, there is nothing objectionable about all these. After all, everything is quantifiable.
But if everything is quantifiable, does this mean that everything is worth quantifying and that qualitative analysis will one day become obsolete?
