Description
As humanity approaches the dawn of a new millennium, it faces a startling paradox: an ever-increasing influx of information is matched by an ever-decreasing confidence in the capacity to know.
Many prominent philosophers of this century may better be described as anti-philosophers because of their tendency to see philosophical problems merely as linguistic muddles and their conviction that the human mind is incapable of actually knowing anything; nihilists like Richard Rorty even say that “the best hope for philosophy is not to practice Philosophy”1 and that we must “drop the idea . . . that Truth is ‘out there’ waiting for human beings to arrive at it.”2 Skepticism has left its mark on modern science as well: the journal Nature ran an article in which two scientists indicted the four most influential philosophers of science of this century, Karl Popper, Imre Lakatos, Thomas Kuhn, and Paul Feyerabend as “enemies of science” for whom “the term ‘truth’ has become taboo” and whose skepticism and nihilism “may be impairing scientific progress at this moment.”3 Books and articles heralding “the end of science” are paralleled by proclamations of “the end of philosophy.”
