Scientism

On a new episode of ID the Future, Andrew McDiarmid concludes his two-part conversation with Michael Aeschliman, author of the newly revised and expanded The Restoration of Man: C. S. Lewis and the Continuing Case Against Scientism. Download the episode or listen to it here.

Aeschliman places Lewis among a strong line of thinkers critiquing scientism, including the philosopher and mathematician Blaise Pascal, who showed that scientific knowledge on its own could never be sufficient for being fully human; the theologian and physicist Stanley L. Jaki, who brilliantly integrated science and theology; and the great English author Jonathan Swift, whose satirical work skewered the illusions of scientific reductionism.
