WHEN SCIENTISTS DO PHILOSOPHY...Preface:聽 Be warned. This piece borders on being a typical academic rant, and deals with a somewhat esoteric subject. But that does not mean it is obscure. For it is not. I believe strongly that it can be followed by...

Robert Cormack, I understand what you're saying and, in the main, agree. However, my academic background in philosophy drives me to be overly meticulous about expressing the difference between "the facts" and "our perception of understanding of the facts". You say, "...facts can change the more we understand facts...", but I would say that what changes is not the facts themselves, but the set of what is generally accepted as "the facts". Picayune? Perhaps. But a distinction that I believe is essential, if we are to get away from the misbegotten concept that what is factual is completely relative. (And please, those of you out there who will now be moved to refer to Einstein's Theory of Relativity, be sure that you first understand the core thesis he advanced.) Thanks, Robert, for reading and commenting. Cheers!

What might be the argument, @Phil Friedman, is that facts can change the more we understand facts. Our factual knowledge should be changing dramatically with new forms of finding them鈥攐r disputing them. Very few facts have not been questioned. That should be the work of scientists. Whether that places them above everyone else is a reasonable argument. Who has a handle on the latest facts and who has the insight to perhaps expand or dispute what is factual. Again, this is the job of scientists, whether it's academic or political. Good piece. Good discussion.
