Does anyone know what science is? Does anyone know what philosophy is? Can anyone explain the difference? Or science and philosophy what some (but not enough) thinkers call “logical fictions” or “(theoretical) constructs?
For instance, can the professors who are under contract to serve as members of Assumption College’s Department of Political Science . . . can they explain the difference? They should be able to. Here is why:
First, their department name is Political SCIENCE.
But, one of the courses that every Poly Sci major must take is PO 205, entitled “Political PHILOSOPHY.”
If they cannot explain the difference, perhaps members of the various science can explain what science is, and members of the philosophy department can explain what philosophy is?
Of should we turn to the College President? Or the Provost? Or…?
