Quote of the Week - Nicholas Rescher

"The theorist who maintains that science is the be-all and end-all - that what is not in the science textbooks is not worth knowing - is an ideologist with a peculiar and distorted doctrine of his own. For him, science is no longer a sector of the cognitive enterprise but an all-inclusive world-view. This is the doctrine not of science but of scientism. Totake this stance is not to celebrate science but to distort it." -- Nicholas Rescher
