Scientism: Philosophy and the Infatuation with Scienceby Tom Sorell
Now available in paper, this acclaimed work shows how Western philosophy has been dominated by an identification with the aims of science and the rationality of its methods. This has resulted in attempts to either dismiss the unscientific or put it on a scientific footing. Tom Sorell attempts to increase the value placed on the arts and humanities, rather than devalue science. He insists that philosophy is not a science and condemns recent attempts in the name of ``naturalism'' to revive the project of a scientific philosophy.
