In an age retarded by the fundamentally anti-intellectual and multifarious scourge of cognitive relativism, Why Science Matters draws on the rich literature of classical and contemporary philosophy (including Plato, Russell, Kuhn, Wittgenstein, Popper, Lakatos and Gödel, among others) to make a stand for the primacy of science. I argue in Why Science Matters that an adherence to science’s underlying ethos (moreso than any particular method) uniquely furnishes humanity with the powerful ability to generate accurate and reliable knowledge about life, the universe and everything.
