Ep. #878: Pat Flynn on Science vs. Scientism
If you enjoy my previous philosophical musings with my good buddy Pat Flynn, you’re going to enjoy this podcast.
That’s because in it, Pat Flynn and I discuss the concept of scientism, “the Science” with a capital “S,” as well as epistemological questions like “how do we know what we know?”
Pat is a repeat guest not only because I enjoy our conversations, but I’ve gotten great feedback from listeners who like hearing about these deeper, philosophical topics we wade through. Plus, I believe the answers to these “big” questions like the ones we discuss in these philosophical tangent episodes (or at least the act of thinking about them) can help us live a better life.
In case you’re not familiar with Pat, not only is he a fitness expert who is known for his kettlebell prowess, but he’s also a podcaster, philosopher, and author.
In our discussion, we talk about . . .
- Science with a capital “S” and how we know what we “know”
- When and why to be skeptical of “the science”
- What scientism is and what science can and can’t tell us
- The concept of a “bully consensus”
- How we can use this information to make better choices
- And a lot more . . .
So, if you want to learn what scientism is, why science isn’t always the answer to all questions, and how we really know what we know, listen to this podcast!
