Episode 26 - Science

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.

  1. Dick Rider Dick Rider

    BTW…Paul Feyerabend’s name is pronounced ‘Fire-AH-bend’.

  2. I would say that the -scientific method- is the best way to understand the mechanics of the world, though it’s not necessarily the best way to understand existence. The word “scientism” used to stick in my craw, but I just see too many people quoting a scientific position or paper or concept like it was scripture, and woh be to any heretic who wavers.

    I was very intrigued to listen to this podcast and was left wanting more. I hope you revisit the topic and leave out more of the kvetching of critics in favor of productive discussion. That is my kvetch.
