Ian Hutchinson’s series centers on his new book Monopolizing Knowledge in which he critiques the world-view he calls “scientism”: “the belief that science, modeled on the natural sciences, is the only source of real knowledge.” In Hutchinson’s eyes, this erroneous world-view is at least indirectly responsible for the apparent friction between science and religion that many see today. Hutchinson will attempt to both explain and dismantle “scientism” by examining both what we mean when we say “science”, and how the “scientistic” worldview oversteps this definition and becomes a philosophical and metaphysical framework.
