You’ll have to listen in. This is the busiest time of year for me, so I haven’t the time to write out a transcript of the show. However, here is an outline.
1. Scientism, scidolatry, scientific clericalism;
2. Science as culture and dogma;
3. ‘Impact factors’ and the quantification of the unquantifiable;
4. Grants and democratic inflation;
5. Uncritical peer-review and criticism;
6. Cheating, scheming, shifty liars;
7. A return to metaphysics and philosophy.
