This episode is interesting because it fleshes out an interesting tension. We discuss science as a “monster of reified reality” as a juxtoposition of what seems to be a series of primitivist, and post-primitivist, assertions attempting to redefine & reclaim science (probably small s). This should lead to a series of conversations about the consequence of this distinction regarding technology, ethics, and practice but will probably bog down into a conversation about naming.
