What is Scientism? aaas.org

Submitted by tnstaec in Science

Creating a dogma built around (simplistic understandings of) science is not an appropriate response to the dogmas of religion, politics, etc.

I think much of philosophy is mental masturbation posturing as intellect.

That's an insult to masturbation ;) I know what you mean, tho. Philosophy often becomes a mental exercise divorced from real world, hands-on experience. I know some philosophy major types that want to turn every conversation into an analytical, devil's advocate debate and I start looking for their 'off' switch.
