Will science explain away philosophy too?
Science is close to explaining away theology, and some, myself included, would say it already has. Is philosphy next? If science can explain away our free will and prove that our consciousness is nothing more than electric pulses and chemical reactions will philosophy suffer the same fate as religion? Will all philosophy start to be viewed as childish fairy tales (to steal a phrase from the article) of little, or no, meaning?
I personally don't think philosophy will every completely fade away, but than I also don't think religion will either. Your thoughts?
