    Scientism and Education: Empirical Research as Neo-Liberal Ideology Emery J. Hyslop-Margison, M. Ayaz Naseem This volume offers a critical examination of the mounting pressure placed on educators to apply scientific principles to improve education. According to John Cowburn in Scientism: A Word We Need (Wipf & Stock, ), scientism is a worldview where “only scientific knowledge is valid that science can explain and do everything and that nothing else can explain or do anything: it is the belief that science and reason, or scientific and rational, are co-extensive terms.”.

      Scientism: The New Orthodoxy is a comprehensive philosophical overview of the question of scientism, discussing the role and place of science in the humanities, religion, and the social sciences.. Clarifying and defining the key terms in play in discussions of scientism, this collection identifies the dimensions that differentiate science from :   Science, at its core, is simply a method of practical logic that tests hypotheses against experience. Scientism, by contrast, is the worldview and value system that insists that the questions the scientific method can answer are the most important questions human beings can ask, and that the picture of the world yielded by science is a better approximation to reality .

    I strongly recommend the book, which would serve well as a text for students, or as a reference for scholars whose work and lives are influenced by the challenges of Scientism.' Ars Disputandi 'In this important book scientists' views about science and its relationship to knowledge, ethics and religion are subjected to critical scrutiny.'. Realizing the significance of science in education, Dewey sought an answer to the questions of why we teach, what we teach, and how we teach, based on science. Dewey's effort to find a scientific basis of education was frequently misunderstood as “scientism,” which means unjustified or excessive reliance on positivistic science.
