Truths that Science cannot Touch

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademicpeer-review


In this article I argue (i) that truth is the goal of science, (ii) that there is no clear demarcation between science and non-science (the demarcation is not to be found in method, nor in certain assumptions being made, nor in the nature of the results of scientific inquiry, nor in a supposed disinterestedness on the part of scientists), and (iii) that nothwithstanding the absence of a clear demarcation, there are truths, even truths that we can know, that science obviously cannot touch.
