Defending Science - Within Reason
AbstractWe need to find a middle way between the exaggerated deference towards science characteristic of scientism, and the exaggerated suspicion characteristic of anti-cientific attitudes — to acknowledge that science is neither sacred nor a confidence trzck The Crztical Commonsenszst account of scientzfic evidence and scientific method offered here corrects the narrowly logical approach of the Old Deferentialists without succumbing to the New Cynics' sociologism or their factitious despair of the epistemic credentials of science.
