The Science Delusion
Asking the Big Questions in A Culture of Easy AnswersBook - 2013
In The Science Delusion, Curtis White argues that the rich philosophical debates of the 19th century have been almost totally abandoned. Instead, students are taught that science can resolve all questions. White describes this new era as one of scientism' - and fears for what will happen if it is allowed to flourish unchallenged as the new religion, one with many unexplained assumptions. White rounds off with a learned defence of the tradition of Romanticism, which he believes a technology and science-obsessed world desperately needs to recover.'
