New Book on Methodological Naturalism in Science

Posted 25 Feb 2017 at 01:25 UTC by johnnyb Share This

I just published a book titled Naturalism and Its Alternatives in Scientific Methodologies which deals with whether Methodological Naturalism is helpful or hurtful to science, what alternatives could be used, and what the benefits and problems of those approaches might be. The book also ended with a chapter on some fields which are already benefitting from alternatives to methodological naturalism.

This book is based on a conference, the videos of which you can view here.

Catechism is to religion what methodological naturalism is to science. - badvogato

Is it helpful to science or not?

I mean, what other endeavours embraced methodological naturalism, outside of science? It seems to me that M N is *the reason* science has been so darned successful, way more successful than other pursuits.

Plenty of other endeavours wish to hitch themselves to science because of its successes. It isn't science that needs to change. Science is doing just fine.
