What is "they" referring to? Does "But while they may scorn such relativist discussions, scientists are not talking about the domestication of Beauty." mean: "Although scientists may scorn relativist discussions, they do not mean scorning the domestication of beauty."? is "they" actually referring to "scientists"? the context: In the grumbling skirmishes between the feminists and the Marxists, is Steiner not complicit with this state of affairs? Worse, the evolutionary psychologists have reconstructed much the same thing and, as we shall see in Chapter 4, some theorists and social scientists believe they may even have a political agenda. But while they may scorn such relativist discussions, scientists are not talking about the domestication of Beauty. For them real Beauty is altogether a more profound entity and is aligned with Truth, the truth of a unified Reality waiting to be revealed.

Yup, you're right, it refers to the scientists. You can double check by switching "they" and "scientists" and still have the same meaning: "But while scientists may scorn such relativist discussions, they are not talking about the domestication of beauty". Hope that helps!
