>>528374 Well science can't really impose on philosophy since science is a derivative of philosophy. You can't even do science without philosophy. Even very hard sciences like physics have limits on what you can do with empiricism and eventually you need to use some abstract thinking in order to make the whole model make sense. As a very basic example if you want to say that the universe is ordered this requires some philosophy to rationalize it and define exactly what the nature of order is. If you don't take this idea that the universe is ordered than the scientific method is meaningless. Without the theory of order you couldn't assume that because soemthing worked before it would work again.
>>528374 I would say that, by one definition of science, it cannot impose impose a philosophy but can be used to do so.
By another definition of "science", it IS a philosophy.
By another definition of "science", it could impose a philosophy. In this case "science" would refer to a "scientistic" group of people performing "science", i.e. a plurality of scientists sharing what might be called a "scientistic" ideology that one might call a "philosophy".
Now should those people not proselytize? Well I can see why Chesterton would try and fail to stop them.
Now should a phone not tell us what to say? Well I agree at least partially with McLuhan that the phone is saying something itself, and cannot fail to influence what we say.
Just try to compare Lincoln's letters with Clinton's emails.
>>528374 It's ignorant but it needs context. One of the core arguments used by Christian apologists is that as a metaphysical God can't be discovered or proven as a physical entity, similar to the way that a programmer cannot literally be found within a video game.
