Steven Novella definerer vitenskapelig skeptisisme

Fra: The definition of “Skeptic”
Skeptic – The Name Thing Again

Sitat fra: Steven Novella
A skeptic is one who prefers beliefs and conclusions that are reliable and valid to ones that are comforting or convenient, and therefore rigorously and openly applies the methods of science and reason to all empirical claims, especially their own. A skeptic provisionally proportions acceptance of any claim to valid logic and a fair and thorough assessment of available evidence, and studies the pitfalls of human reason and the mechanisms of deception so as to avoid being deceived by others or themselves. Skepticism values method over any particular conclusion.


Hva mener ni om dette?

Hei Neptun, flott at du tar denne definisjonen opp til diskusjon igjen!

Forrige gang var i kategorien "Filosofi, kritisk tenkning og logikk", men dessverre kom det ingen svar. Jeg har derfor slått dine to innlegg sammen i én tråd her under "Spør en skeptiker".

Jeg håper at det kommer kommentarer denne gangen, f.eks. fra Asbjørn Dyrendal.

En helt utmerket innstilling, og noe å etterstrebe. Jeg er redd den er litt "comforting and convenient" heller enn en pålitelig empirisk påstand, men den er da også ment å skulle være det første heller enn det andre.
