Scientific Shores for Philosophy

Andrius Konickis


A thesis that philosophy is not (and even cannot and has not to be) science is posed and discussed. The main argument is that science investigates an object and forms a knowledge of it, while philosophy ponders over an object or the world on the whole but does not investigate anything. Contrast between science and philosophy becomes more and more distinct under conditions of postmodernism because of serious doubts as to the status of science.
