Re: Re: Re: philosophy, a dead "art" (13/06/17 21:29:31)
It's a matter of background and experience and personal biases. The discipline itself has drifted. In the early and simpler times philosophy and science could be one and the same. Now philosophy IMHO has little or nothing to do with science or the real world. But science in its turn seems to be drifting away from being about the real world because. The time from a fundamental discovery to technological maturity is getting shorter, and those who remain in the empty fields have their careers and incomes to think about. Time to hire journalists; public relations are helpful in the grant application process.
So even science is getting closer to death.
Sorry - it wasn't a reply to your question.
