I andra sammanhang (utanför ankdammen Sverige) pågår diskussioner som verkligen förtjänar att kallas intressanta.
Vad sägs om dessa inpass om ”naturalismen”:
”If it is true that all truths are discoverable by hard science, then it is discoverable by hard science that all truths are discoverable by hard science. But it is not discoverable by hard science that all truths are discoverable by hard science. ‘Are all truths discoverable by hard science?’ is not a question of hard science. Therefore the extreme naturalist claim is not true.”
”[We] should not take for granted that reality contains only the kinds of things that science even in the broad sense recognizes. My caution comes not from any sympathy for mysterious kinds of cognition alien to science in the broad sense, but simply from the difficulty of establishing in any remotely scientific way that reality contains only the kinds of thing that we are capable of recognizing at all.”
