Space Time Mind

Philosophy, Science, and a Bunch of Other Stuff

SpaceTimeMind is a podcast by two philosophy professors, Richard Brown(CUNY LaGuardia Community College) and Pete Mandik (William Paterson University), who discuss philosophy, science, and a whole bunch of other stuff, with musical interludes provided by our band, Quiet Karate Reflex.

Scientism

Richard and Pete welcome their new scientismicological overlords and hope they find their nifty blue shirts pleasing.

Hosts of the SpaceTimeMind podcast, philosophers of science Richard Brown and Pete Mandik, discuss scientism. Is everything worth knowing accessible via the methods of science? If so, how would you know that? Can scientism be self-justifying? Is it instead self-refuting? Is calling something "scientific" just an empty honorific?
