Best Anglophone philosophers of science since 1945: ...I am surprised at this, because Rudolf Carnap and Hempel were a logical postivist, and today's philosophers say that was wrong. Popper was an anti-positivist, but people like him because they think he was a positivist. Kuhn was even more anti-positivist, and popularized denying objective truth.

Update: Here is a philosopher whining about philosophers not getting respect from a science popularist Bill Nye. For example, Pigliucci complains that Nye falls fort he fallacy that dropping a hammer on his foot convinces him that the hammer is real. I don't know, this seems as good an argument as anything else that the hammer is real. But I guess philosophers like to live in a pretend-world where nothing is real.
