Modern Science And The Future
In the debate between realism and empiricism the question of the viability of modern science is seldom raised, the issue being rather one of how modern science ought best be conducted. In fact few of the contributions to the debate, whether realist or empiricist, even recognise that fundamentally different alternative forms of science are possible, the belief being rather that with the Scientific Revolution of the seventeenth century, if not earlier, humankind hit upon the one true scientific path to knowledge, the task now being that of continuing to follow that path in the best possible way.
