At long last, the interview with Massimo Pigliucci! First, we discuss a recent article by Massimo regarding Neil DeGrasse Tyson’s dismissal and contempt for philosophy. This article can be found on his new “webzine” here: http://scientiasalon.wordpress.com/2014/05/12/neil-degrasse-tyson-and-the-value-of-philosophy/
Also, his twitter handle is @mpigliucci
After that, we begin the discussion on scientism and the New Atheists. That discussion will be concluded in Thursday’s show along with lots of Tommentary regarding the interview.
