Notes

  1. ↑ Scientism: "an exaggerated trust in the efficacy of the methods of natural science applied to all areas of investigation (as in philosophy, the social sciences, and the humanities)" definition from: Martin Ryder, "Scientism." Encyclopedia of Science Technology and Ethics, 3rd ed. (Detroit: MacMillan Reference Books, 2005.)
  2. ↑ Scientism: "Pejorative term for the belief that the methods of natural science, or the categories and things recognized in natural science, form the only proper elements in any philosophical or other inquiry. The classic statement of scientism is the physicist E. Rutherford's saying 'there is physics and there is stamp-collecting.'," definition from The Oxford Dictionary of Philosophy n.d.
  3. ↑ After reviewing the usage of the term by contemporary scholars, Gregory R. Peterson concludes that "the best way to understand the charge of scientism is as a kind of logical fallacy involving improper usage of science or scientific claims." (753). From: "Gregory R. Peterson, (2003) Demarcation and the Scientistic Fallacy. Zygon: Journal of Religion and Science 38 (4), 751-761. doi: 10.1111/j.1467-9744.2003.00536.x"
