Philosophy, including Reason itself, has been under attack for centuries. Our mission is to restore the greatness of the one while clarifying the meaning and use of the other in the age of science and information theory.
We will show that three developments in the physical sciences of the twentieth century must profoundly influence our thinking about some of the greatest problems (or questions) of traditional philosophy.
In the past, when a part of philosophy made recognizable progress, such as logic or the natural sciences, that part was removed from philosophy, leaving only unanswered - some thought unanswerable - questions. Using recent advances in scientific knowledge to examine three fundamental questions about freedom, value, and knowledge, we hope to reconcile science and philosophy. We will explore...
