Philosophy: Beacon or Trap
- 171 Downloads
There was a time when everyone expected almost everything from philosophy. It was the time when philosophers drew confidently the main lines of a picture of the world and left physicists the menial task of filling in some details. When this aprioristic approach was seen to fail, the physicist forsook philosophy altogether. Today he expects nothing good from it. So much so that the mere word ‘philosophy’ is apt to evoke an ironic or even contemptuous smile in him. He knows better than to indulge in free wheeling in the void.
