Scientism and Ancient Philosophy
Ancient philosophical approaches have an advantage over modern, reductive approaches, because the ancient approach can absorb whatever insights are true in modern mechanistic explanations, while dogmatic reductionism cannot absorb the spiritual insights of ancient thought.
Science and Scientism
Scientism is not science. Scientism is a questionable philosophy that misunderstands the methodological bracketing of science.
I do not want to disown all the good things that come with the modern world, and I don't think that we can turn back the clock. What I want to resist is not modernity but modernism.
