A Few Remarks on the Scientific Propositions for Human Salvation
The paper focuses on the issues of philosophical foundations of science policy theoreticians, experts and educators. These persons eagerly contain human prosperity within a (quasi)scientific agenda. The paper contends that this universal techno-scientific approach is not directly connected with and owes very little to the socio-political arrangements of certain governments or agencies. Therefore, the claim that societal challenges ought to be dealt with scientifically should be separated from the claim that the techno-scien- tific problem-solving is the only virtuous way to human enhancement. consequently, the issues of scien- tific autonomy and representationist and nonrepresentationist paradigms of scientific knowledge are con- sidered and their brief conceptual assessment is proposed.
