Context is everything when it comes to vocabulary it seems.

"The Scholarly Excerpts of Car'all"
- I personally find such a title appealing and fairly "santharian", but I can understand the simplicity of the word "science" when used in such a context.

Insanity is only a perception made by those who have yet to attain its greatness. While those of us who have already stepped inside its bounds find bliss in our utter madness.

After a decent nap I find it appealing as well...Scholarly excerpts does have a certain something but I am not sure perhaps the gnomes can use "science" and the rest of the races who are less advanced can use scholarly.
Maybe "Scholarly Dissertations of Car'all"

Maybe we should make a research about the old words that have been used in the past of the real world. There might be some medieval words which may have something in common with those "science/scientifically wordies", which we try to replace. I don't know... this is just a suggestion. grin

As I understand there is a problem with replacing the word "science". Well, we can replce it with a word "craft", because it is a same thing: craft - an industry or trade generally involving particular skills transmitted through apprenticeship under a master of the craft. By the later Middle Ages crafts were normally regulated, under municipal supervision, by their leading practitioners, who might be united in a guild: hence the modern usage, "craft guild" (something like Santharian Ximax School of Magic).

Anyway, you can try to look here, if you need to replace some words.

Artes Magicae = magic
Artes Liberales = grammar, logic, arithmetic, music, astronomy etc
Artes Mechanicae = tailoring, agriculture, architecture, hunting, trade etc

Sort of a magic-science-craft division. And it's medieval.

Here and there, whole mighty trees glowed with an emitted phosphorescent light. You could trace the very course of the great roots in the earth by a faint light that came through; and every twig, and every vein on every leaf was a streak of pale fire.
George MacDonald, Phantastes
