This is an interesting article that touches on the dangers of ‘scientism’, of hype about what science is telling us and is able to tell us. Mainstream science is often harmfully embedded in the institutions of the status quo and the cultural ‘mindset’ of our era. It is not some totally ‘objective’ practice and that too can have its dangers as the ‘dispassionate’ scientists who worked on Nazi programmes showed us.
This is worth reading too:
Science can, of course, tell us a great deal about the ‘how’. But we need other insights to know the ‘why’, about the ethical ‘ends’ we ought to pursue by those ‘means’.
