superimposed on the scientific method

St. Bernard has stated in a few words that “We search in a worthier manner, we discover with greater facility through prayer than through disputation.” …This is the additional value which is superimposed on the scientific method; it is the source of all understanding and all love. It is what will always distinguish the work of the spiritual man from that of the intellectual.

From The Love of Learning and the Desire for God: a Study of Monastic Culture by Jean Leclercq, page 211.
