Postmodern Science

“The one reality science cannot reduce is the only reality we will ever know,”  
   --Jonah Lehrer

"Science as it is practiced today is clearly not sufficient to guide humanity to a socio-ecology that is dynamic and harmonious – one that can mimic a complex ecosystem capable of thriving for hundreds of thousands of years, like a forest or a coral reef – or even the tens of thousands of years that some indigenous peoples managed without any reliance at all upon the scientific method.
On the contrary, scientistic hubris could just as well lead to our extinction. The scientific method gave humans unprecedented power over matter – and we used it to make possible the relentlessly efficient machinery that is already facilitating rapid climate change and the earth’s sixth great extinction of species."
