Scott and Karl finish their discussion of Edward Feser’s Scholastic Metaphysics: A Contemporary Introduction.

The duo picks up where they left off last week, exploring Feser's arguments against scientism and the issues that arise when the scientific method implies moral truths or the limits of reality. Karl says, "It becomes a problem when the scientific method quits being a tool and becomes a metaphysics... things leap out of their proper spot."

Scott adds, "There are things about humans that are not explicable by scientism. Those things end up being entirely denied."

Tune in to learn more about Feser's contemporary introduction to scientism and what can happen to the human experience if it is reduced to the quantifiable. Brought to you by onlinegreatbooks.com.
