'Entropy is anthropomorphic': does this lead to interpretational devalorisation of entropy-enthalpy compensation?

It is presently well recognised that the concept of entropy can be formulated in many different ways-and this is definitely dependent on the problem to be solved. Does this fact really mean that the entropy-enthalpy compensation underlying physically/chemically valid iso-kinetic, iso-selective, iso-equilibrium relationships immediately loses its interpretational value? By invoking the well forgotten (and sometimes even simply unknown!) work by G.A. Linhart, we would like to demonstrate that in effect entropy's anthropomorphicity opens interesting interpretational opportunities.
