Who Knows What?

A long piece from Massimo Pigliucci on why it’s wrong for either science or humanities to vie for supremacy in the quest for knowledge. Wisdom is more than knowledge I’d say, but Massimo’s piece covers a lot of ground and references well trodden here on Psybertron.

As Dan Dennett wrote in Darwin’s Dangerous Idea:

“There’s no such thing as philosophy-free science;
there is only science whose philosophical baggage
is taken on board without examination.”
