TRUTHS THAT SCIENCE CANNOT TOUCH

TRUTHS THAT SCIENCE CANNOT TOUCH In this article I argue (i) that truth is the goal of science, (ii) that there is no clear demarcation between science and non-science (the demarcation is not to be found in method, nor in certain assumptions being made, nor in the nature of the results of scientific inquiry, nor in a supposed disinterestedness on the part of scientists), and (iii) that notwithstanding the absence of a clear demarcation, there are truths, that science obviously can touch, but also truths, even truths that we can know, that science obviously cannot touch. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Philosophia Reformata Brill

Abstract

In this article I argue (i) that truth is the goal of science, (ii) that there is no clear demarcation between science and non-science (the demarcation is not to be found in method, nor in certain assumptions being made, nor in the nature of the results of scientific inquiry, nor in a supposed disinterestedness on the part of scientists), and (iii) that notwithstanding the absence of a clear demarcation, there are truths, that science obviously can touch, but also truths, even truths that we can know, that science obviously cannot touch.
