In this response, the author addresses Hansen's (2012) call for the counseling profession to substitute science with humanities as its primary ideology. The author uses Epstein's (1994) cognitive–experiential self-theory to show that an equal appreciation for science and humanities is more congruent with a holistic humanistic vision for counseling.
