What can be done in order to help philosophy out with its PR problem, other than attempting to educate some prominent physicists and perhaps gently nudge toward retirement those senior philosophers who suddenly begin to write about the evils of “Darwinism”?It is funny how these leftist-atheist-evolutionists think. Philosophers can say that the world is not real, or that there is no free will, or that there are zillions of unobservable parallel universes, or that there is no causality in fundamental science, and he says that is all just good modern enlightened thinking. But if anyone questions any aspect of Darwinism, then he should be purged from the society of respectable philosophers.
Pigliucci admits that philosophers get no respect, but blames it on the ignorance of physicists.
No, the problem with modern philosophers is that they are ignorant of modern science, and they deny that science is progressing towards truth.
